Veteran Western star Harry Carey played identical twins in this average silent oater based on a story by Jack Boyle. Carey is accused of robbing the Railway Express, a deed actually committed by his twin brother, a WWI veteran suffering from shellshock. By this late date, Carey's leathery old cowpokes were considered quite outdated, especially when compared to the stunt-driven extravaganzas committed by Tom Mix and Ken Maynard. His career definitely on the wane, Carey surprised everyone when he bounced back in the title role of the popular Trader Horn (1930).
