A hero, his horse, a girl, a villain, a moppet and a black sidekick were the main ingredients of this minor silent western from Jesse J. Goldburg's Independent Pictures. The hero is good old Franklyn Farnum, who plays a prospector defending his claim against the evil Mack V. Wright. The fact that the villain is the brother of the heroine (veteran serial queen Marie Walcamp) complicates matters, and so does the presence of Farnum's young daughter (Doreen Turner). The black sidekick was portrayed by Martin Turner, perhaps the busiest African-American performer in westerns at the time. Turner usually supported Pete Morrison but also appeared opposite Jack Perrin and Dick Hatton. He mainly played jolly Pullman porters in sound films.
