An honest cowboy is once again falsely accused of being an outlaw in this minor silent western from independent producer Anthony J. Xydias. The victim of accusations this time is the strapping J.B. Warner, who is saved from the lynching party in the last moment by rotund sheriff Robert McKenzie. Proving his innocence by preventing a stage robbery, Warner is eventually cleared of all wrong-doings by his weakling brother. Sadly, this was silent-screen action lead J.B. Warner's final film before succumbing to tuberculosis at the young age of 29.
