Hunt Stromberg produced this above-average western in which hero Tiger Thompson (Harry Carey) promises a dying train robber to mind his innocent daughter (Marguerite Clayton) and return the stolen loot. Along the way, Thompson is attacked by the dead man's gang but manages to reach the law (and the girl) in one piece and with the stolen money intact. A throwback to a sterner era, Carey's days as a star seemed to be coming to a close in an era of flappers and Tom Mix. The veteran star surprisingly bounced back in the early days of sound, starring in the popular action adventure/travelogue Trader Horn (1930).
