Also-ran cowboy star Roy Stewart played a tough law and order sheriff in this independently produced silent western. Having banned the carrying of firearms in his jurisdiction, Larry Reid, the sheriff of Silvertown, pursues a trespasser of the strict law to the home of schoolmarm Mary Gray (Marjorie Daw). Noticing her evasive answers, Larry suspects the teacher of harboring the refugee. He finally captures the young man in question, Neil (Johnny Walker), who proves to be Mary's weakling brother. Attempting to clear up any misunderstandings, the sheriff and his captive arrive at Mary's house just in time to rescue the girl from being attacked by a vile "half-breed" (Wallace Beery). This film was also released as Ridin' Wild and should not be confused with the similarly titled Hoot Gibson western of the same year.
