Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Based on a 1922 Western Story Magazine short-story by George Owen Baxter, this fine silent Western featured the spectacle of Bessie Love playing a battered wife, who to escape her brutal husband, masquerades as a man. A rather simple revenge story (apart from Love's unusual getup), Three Who Paid starred Dustin Farnum as Riley Sinclair, a cowboy determined to punish the three villains who left his brother Hal (Robert Agnew) to die in the desert. Sinclair goes after the three bad men (Fred Kohler, Frank Campeau and Robert Daly), who one by one are made to pay for their crime. Former Griffith star Love was suffering one of her many career-slumps when she appeared, third-billed, in this Western produced by Fox.
