Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Lower-echelon cowboy star Leo Maloney produced and directed this inexpensive silent western, released through independent Hollywood entrepreneur William Steiner. This time Maloney plays a Texas Ranger on the trail of a gang of opium smugglers operating on the border to Mexico. Soon, he is falsely accused of being a smuggler himself but manages to clear his name, apprehend the crooks, and win the girl (Josephine Hill. As always, Maloney was well assisted by the blond Hill and a clever canine named Bullet, but an above-average supporting cast -- including Whitehorse as the girl's father and the always watchable Bud Osborne as one of the villains -- made The Loser's End one of his better efforts.
