Dynamite, one of canine star Rin-Tin-Tin's many imitators, starred in this silent action melodrama from Universal, in which the pooch saves Silver Creek's new schoolmarm Molly (Gloria Grey) from a serious injury. Later that day, Dynamite witnesses the killing of John Lawton (Frank M. Clark) by his longtime enemy Marvin Henley (Gladden James). Retrieving some valuable papers that Henley stole from Lawton, Dynamite also rescues the dead man's young son Spots (Billy "Red" Jones, who is given shelter by the dog's owner, sportsman Jack Brooks (Edmund Cobb). The latter, who earlier saved Molly from Henley's unwanted advances, manages to catch the crook and place him under arrest. Spots receives an inheritance and Jack proposes to Molly.
