Cowboy star William S. Hart plays Jefferson "Riddle" Gawne, a man who really carries a grudge. When he finds his brother dying and hears that the killer has run off with his brother's wife, he swears revenge. Years pass and Riddle earns the enmity of cattle rustler Hame Bozzam (Lon Chaney). When Easterner Kathleen Harkless (Katherine MacDonald) comes to town, things really heat up between our hero and Bozzram, as both men want the girl. Riddle is shot and nearly killed by Bozzram, but he recovers to win Kathleen and emerge victorious over Bozzram, who, it turns out, was his brother's murderer. This film was based on a serial, The Vengeance of Jefferson Gawne by Charles Alden Seltzer, which appeared in the Argosy.
