Established during the 1898 Gold Rush, the Alaskan community of Satan Town does its best (or worst) to live up to its name. It is here that hero Bill Scott (Harry Carey) shows up one day, determined to wreak vengeance on John Jerome (Charles Clary), the shyster lawyer who double-crossed him years earlier. But Jerome is punished aplenty by Cruel Fate, saving Scott the trouble. The hero's decision not to shoot Jerome is rewarded when he is reunited with his long-lost adopted son. Though Satan Town has the "feel" of a multiplotted Zane Grey story, it was actually written by Jack Boyle, of "Boston Blackie" fame.
