Genre regulars Buddy Roosevelt and Elsa Benham starred in this pleasant, if inexpensively mounted, silent western produced by the prolific Lester F. Scott, Jr.. Roosevelt (whose somewhat silly screen name was a Scott invention) plays a nice cowboy who intervenes when Benham's weakling brother is about to join a gang of outlaws. This film was the feature directorial debut for future MGM stalwart Richard Thorpe, who also played the brother. Thorpe's long directorial career ranged from a series of Charlie Murray 2-reel comedies in 1923 to The Last Challenge (1967), a routine western starring Glenn Ford.
