Cameraman Charles R. Seeling produced, wrote and directed this very minor silent western starring Guinn "Big Boy" Williams. The Seeling-Williams westerns were among the cheapest on the market, and few, if any, have survived. This time around Williams saves a lumber-mill baron (William Horne) and his pretty daughter (Virginia Adair) from a train wreck. A nefarious foreman (Jack Pitcairn) is attempting to devalue the price of the lumber company by setting a series of fires, but Williams is on to him. The lumbering "Big Boy" was not much of a western star but enjoyed a long supporting career in talkies where his brand of hayseed humor could be better appreciated.
