This obscure independent silent western starred minor league cowboy Dick Hatton and Ethel Shannon, a raven-haired WAMPAS Baby Star of 1923. The plot was the usual one in which a cowboy rescues a young lady from a gang of kidnappers. Hatton was a typical silent western star, tough-looking and not at all the typical handsome western hero of later years. He was fine when playing it straight but had an unattractive tendency to pout. He died in a car accident at the age of 45.
