Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Early silent-screen star Charles Ray's career was in a dramatic decline when he starred in this average western melodrama about a sheltered youth who makes his way out West by playing the fiddle. Like so many before and after him, Ray proves his true manliness by foiling the nefarious plans of a gang of land grabbers. Produced by the Thomas Ince Corporation for release by Pathé, this Ray vehicle benefitted from a slightly tongue-in-cheek script and colorful performances from the likes of Victor McLaglen and that outrageous silent screen vamp Betty Blythe. Stunt-man William Harbaugh drowned in the Colorado River near Yuma, Arizona during the making of this film.
