Poverty Row producer-director Victor Adamson took a skeleton crew, a couple of Hollywood cowboys, pretty ingenue Alma Rayford and an adorable (and sadly unbilled) tot and went to a sleepy, rather dusty California hamlet to shoot this pleasant silent western. Travelling West with her mother (Rayford), a little girl wanders off when their train makes a stop at a small town. In one of those coincidences found only in cheap Hollywood melodramas, the girl's father is the local outlaw, and it is he who finds the child. Desperately searching for her wayward offspring, Rayford is offered assistance by cowboy Art Mix, who manage to rescue the little girl no less than three times before the happy end. Hiding behind the Art Mix moniker was one George Kesterson, a pleasant enough fellow whose white Stetson was one of the tallest in the business.
