Veteran action producer-director-actor J.P. McGowan committed this little Western indiscretion starring lethargic silent cowboy Bob Custer as Texas Collins, an adventurer who, when chased out of town, joins a gang of cattle rustlers. Out performing a bit of recognizance for the gang, Texas happens upon pretty Molly Carson (Peggy Montgomery), who has crashed her car. The girl is brought to the gang's base camp where gang leader "The Tiger" (McGowan) becomes a little too friendly. Texas, who has fallen for Molly, takes umbrage and ultimately brings the gang to justice. The Silent Trail was produced by McGowan's El Dorado company for release by Syndicate Film Exchange, all of which basically meant that the film was distributed to smaller venues only. Custer, who had recently headed his own production unit at FBO, saw his fortunes decline precipitously with the coming of sound.
