The prolific Adele Buffington supplied the story for this above-average Tom Tyler silent western. Buffington didn't open any new doors with her story of two disparate people inheriting a ranch, but the strapping Tyler was one of the better actors in westerns at the time, and little Frankie Darro made a pleasant sidekick. Tyler and Florence Allen, an Eastern snob, are the protagonists who inherit the ranch. They don't get along at first -- she invites her retinue of Eastern society friends, none of whom he can tolerate -- but they nevertheless join forces when it appears that the previous owner was murdered. Among the suspects in the murder case are crooked ranch foreman Al Ferguson, the sheriff (Bob Fleming), and wealthy playboy Arthur Thalasso.
