Taking a breather from Westerns and serials, action hero William Desmond starred in this silent comedy-drama about a crook (Desmond) sentenced by a good-natured lawman (Robert E. Homans) to spend a year in a rural town. There, Desmond not only falls in love with pretty Charlotte Merriam but also saves her father's (Alfred Fisher) business from a nasty banker (John Steppling). The star of no less than 12 silent serials and numerous other action pictures, Irish-born William Desmond would turn to supporting roles -- plenty of them -- after the changeover to sound.
