In his first Western for First National and producer Charles J. Rogers, Ken Maynard played Don Luis O'Flagherty, a daredevil coming to the rescue of his long-lost father, "Tiger" O'Flagherty (George Nichols), the supervisor of a supply-wagon train destined for the miners in Sonora. Tiger is being terrorized by Jesse Wilks (J.P. McGowan), who hopes to starve the miners out of their claims. Falling in love with Tiger's ward, Sally (Dorothy Devore), Don Luis manages to turn the tables on Wilks, who is killed attempting to rob the supply train. Budgeted at 75,000 dollars and featuring a top-notch cast -- which included toothy boy actor Buck Black and such genre regulars as Charles "Slim" Whitaker, Hank Bell, and the Burns brothers, Bob and Fred -- SeƱor Daredevil was less expensive than the rival Tom Mix and Buck Jones Westerns from Fox, but due to Maynard's dexterity and good looks, it did almost as well.
