Stalwart western hero Tom Tyler is once again falsely accused of a crime in this well-made silent oater from FBO. The sheriff has been killed, and everything points to Tyler as the culprit. Discovering the killer to be saloon-owner Harry Woods, Tyler pretends to be sympathetic but is actually gathering evidence. He is aided in his quest by 12-year-old Red Lennox and grizzled sidekick Alfred Hewston. Interestingly, the roles played by Lennox and Hewston were taken over by Buzz Barton and Frank Rice in FBO's popular "Red Hepner" series.
