Second-echelon cowboy star Neal Hart and lovely Yvette Mitchell fall prey to an outwardly respectable but deeply corrupt businessman (William Quinn) in this low-budget silent western from Pinnacle. The supposedly solid citizen is known across the Mexican border as bandit leader "Kingfisher," and when Hart and girlfriend crosses his way, he accuses the former of horse theft and the latter of shop-lifting. The bandit leader is in love with the girl and promises to drop the charges if she denounces Hart. The latter does not take all this lying down, however, and rides to Mexico in search of the truth. An enigmatic actor, veteran bad-man William Quinn appeared on screen from around 1914 through the mid 1930s. He was frequently cast opposite Neal Hart, but is perhaps best remembered as the villain "Rawhide Pete" in Daughter of the West (1918), an oater starring moppet Baby Marie Osborne.
