Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Veteran cowboy star Harry Carey starred in the title-role in this fine silent Western produced by Hunt Stromberg for Cecil B. DeMille's Producers Distributing Corp. When Silent Sanderson's brother (Gardner James) kills himself over the rejection of a woman, Silent blames Judith Benson (Trilby Clark) and leaves the family homestead to begin a new life in Alaska. He is later reunited with Judith Benson, only to discover that his brother didn't commit suicide at all but was murdered by the woman's jealous husband. The former manager of producer Thomas Ince, Hunt Stromberg would enjoy a 17 year stint as an associate producer with M-G-M, overseeing such classics as The Thin Man series and The Great Ziegfeld (1936).
