Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Visiting his vast properties incognito, Hugh Nichols (Tom Mix) discovers that his land agent (Cyril Chadwick) is forcing Peggy Swain (Clara Bow) and her dad (Frank Beal) off their neighboring ranch. When decent-minded Nichols demands that the agent cease harassing the farmers, the nasty villain blows up the nearby dam, flooding the valley. Nichols heroically saves the lives of Peggy and her father and also manages, in the nick of time, to rescue his own priceless steed, Tony the Wonder Horse. Silent screen star Mix was at the height of his career and Clara Bow at the beginning of hers when the dynamic duo appeared together in The Best Bad Man. The result, alas, proved merely routine.
