This minor oater was the penultimate silent western starring the strapping Tom Tyler. Produced by poverty-row company Syndicate, the film came complete with a synchronized music score and sound effects but was mainly shown in rural theaters not yet wired for sound. Having fallen in love with the pretty Inez (Sheila LeGay), rustler Dave Brandon (Tyler) decides to lead a law-abiding life. The leader of the rustlers, Slug Slagel (Bud Osborne), abducts both Inez and her pa (Tom Forman) in order to persuade Brandon not to defect. The reformed outlaw, however, has been arrested for his previous crimes but manages to escape to the gang's hidden canyon. With the posse right behind him to pick up fleeing bad guys, the hero saves the girl and her father from the nasty Slagel. Having thus redeemed himself, the former outlaw is placed in the custody of his girlfriend.
