A millionaire's son once again toughens up on a western ranch in this low-budget silent western produced by veteran director Harry S. Webb. Jack Perrin plays the wastrel turned hero this time and is soon on the trail of the villains who absconded with the payroll. In between the fast riding, Perrin has to dodge the amorous advances of widow Eva Thatcher. Like many Perrin westerns, this one was played mostly for comedy. Unfortunately, Perrin was no Hoot Gibson or Tom Mix and everything appeared a bit strained. African-American actor Martin Turner offered yet another of his stereotypical sidekick turns, this time as a character "humorously" referred to as "Snowball."
