Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Early silent screen hero William Russell starred as a miner killing a claim jumper in self defence in this average Western from the Fox studios. Fleeing the scene of the crime, Russell is soon a wanted man but the sheriff's daughter (Vola Vale) believes in him and helps clear his name. Charles King, one of the legendary villains of B-Westerns, made one of his earliest screen appearances in this film. A popular star since playing Robin Hood in 1913, William Russell continued as an action adventure hero through the 1920s. His death at 42 in 1929 was attributed to a bout with pneumonia. He was survived by his wife and sometimes leading lady, Helen Ferguson.
