Universal's "Champion Boy Rider," toothy Newton House, starred in this 12-chapter Western serial set among gold prospectors Down Under. House played Ruben Whitney, who, along with his older sister (Louise Lorraine), travels to Australia to join Papa Whitney in his search for gold. The older Whitney is found murdered, and with the help of the handsome Captain Wilson (Buffalo Bill Jr.), Ruben goes in search of the killer, a despicable villain known as Black Jack (Edmund Cobb). Universal's many Western heroes apparently engaged elsewhere, the studio borrowed Buffalo Bill Jr. (aka Jay Wilsey) from Poverty Row company Rayart for this exciting serial, which was directed by action specialist Ray Taylor.
