Producer-director Duke Worne gathered a cast of B-Western actors, hired a cameraman (Ernest F. Smith), and using a blueprint provided by screenwriter Suzanne Avery, made this very low-budget action melodrama about a former ne'er-do-well (Billy Sullivan) who finds redemption in his love for an aspiring novelist (Hazel Deane). The girl's mother (Virginia True Boardman) requires expensive eye surgery and the boy agrees to fight a bully (Harry Tenbrook) for the necessary money. The film was released on the states rights market by Rayart Pictures, the forerunner of Monogram.
