Universal cowboy ace Art Acord once again rescued a damsel in distress from a runaway carriage in this well made silent Western. This time around, Acord played Pony Express rider Jack Marley, the damsel was Fay Wray, and the vehicle was a stagecoach. Mildred (Wray) is travelling West in search of her long-lost father when she catches the roving eye of wicked dance-hall proprietor "Hawk" Kent (Captain C.E. Anderson). She turns him down flat and Kent has his henchman Blaze (J. Gordon Russell) frame her in a crime. To keep herself out of jail, Mildred is compelled to work in Kent's dive, until the ever-gallant Jack once again comes to her rescue. Blaze offers to turn traitor and receives a bullet for his efforts. But before he expires, the ex-henchman reveals that he is Mildred's father. Still a relatively unknown starlet, Fay Wray was still little over four years away from her memorable encounter with King Kong.
