Colorado-born Pete Morrison replaced Universal's own Art Acord as the star of this silent Western about a ranger falsely accused of being in collusion with cattle rustlers. Actually, Ranger Dave Mannion is framed by Blackie Braxton (Les Bates), a rustler dealing in deceased cattle. Having lost his badge, Mannion discovers that Braxton has deposited the cattle at the ranch owned by innocent Don Pio Mendez (Lafe McKee). Bruxton and his henchman Prang (Harry Von Meter), meanwhile, have kidnapped Mannion's girlfriend Doris (Trilby Clark), whom they bring to the Mendez hacienda. With the assistance of Doris' aviator brother (Charles King), Mannion parachutes into the hacienda, singlehandedly defeating the holed up villains. The boozy, brawling Acord, who was to have starred in this film, was once again on the outs with studio owner Carl Laemmle, and the property was handed over to the less prestigious Morrison unit.
