Handsome silent screen idol Wallace Reid takes a job as manager of a stage-line in this early silent western directed by the prolific George Melford. Reid's Henry DeSpain not only defeats the notorious Morgan gang but falls for the gang leader's (Theodore Roberts) lovely daughter, Nan (Ann Little). The climax of the film was a dramatically staged blizzard; the scene, according to Hollywood lore, was directed by Cecil B. DeMille, who substituted that day for an ailing Melford. The villain was played by Theodore Roberts, Paramount's premiere character star who appeared in seven other films that year. Leading lady Ann Little (formerly Anna) was a well-known equestrienne and daredevil actress.
