This very average silent western starred John Gilbert right before MGM made him an international superstar as the doughboy in King Vidor's The Big Parade (1925). Gilbert had already come a long way, from travelling stock companies to playing western villains and starring opposite Mary Pickford in Heart o' the Hills (1919). Along the way, he changed the informal "Jack" to "John" and starred in programmers like Romance Ranch. Gilbert plays Carlos Brent, a young Easterner who inherits a ranch when a long-lost will resurfaces. An evil uncle does everything he can to stop Gilbert from claiming what is rightfully his, but, as always, justice triumphs in the end.
