The identical twin of a murdered prospector tracks down the killer in this silent Western produced by Sam Bischoff. Johnnie Walker, an actor more often seen in light comedy roles, portrayed both the unfortunate prospector and his dapper Big City twin. The latter travels West in search of the killer (Jack Richardson), a notorious bandit preying on gold miners. A missing glove -- found by Walker's faithful dog, Silverstreak -- eventually leads to the killer and his equally vicious henchman, Wheeler Oakman. Mildred June played Richardson's innocent guardian. Like leading man Walker, director Noel Mason Smith came to Westerns from comedy.
