Returning to the old homestead, shell-shocked war veteran Wally Marsh (Wally Wales) is tricked into breaking the law by an unscrupulous villain (William Dunn) in this action-packed silent western written by the prolific Betty Burbridge from a story by genre specialist L.V. Jefferson. Penny-pinching Poverty Row entrepreneur Lester F. Scott, Jr. produced scores of minor oaters like this, all of them geared toward small-town movie theaters where also-ran western heroes such as Wales, Buffalo Bill, Jr. and Buddy Roosevelt were heartily applauded by especially the small fry. If nothing else, an audience could always count on action and picturesque locations in a western produced by Scott's Action Pictures.
