The Robin Hood legend reached the West with this exciting oater starring the veteran William Desmond. Desmond plays a Wall Street tycoon who escapes to the West after being dumped by a girl. He becomes a highway robber known as "The Meddler," stealing from rich travellers to help the poor. That is, until he meets lovely Dolores Rousse and falls in love. Although she sympathizes with his noble cause, Rousse manages to persuade Desmond to live a less strenuous life. The Meddler had a better-than-average supporting cast, including former Keystone starlet Claire Anderson as the Eastern girl, the always dependable Albert J. Smith as a villain, and, as Miss Rousse's weakling brother, young Jack Daughtery, a handsome action lead whose volatile marriage to Metro star Barbara La Marr created headlines for months.
