Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Jack Hoxie's first release of 1926, this Universal Western starred the taciturn hero as a Texas ranger posing as an ex-con in order to infiltrate a gang of land grabbers. Along the way, Hoxie takes time out to romance the gang's lovely stenographer, Lola Todd. (A man of certain standing in the community, gang leader Jere Austin not only employed a stenographer but also a personal secretary.) Todd was, according to studio owner, "Uncle" Carl Laemmle, "one of the best prospects Universal ever had." Todd's subsequent career, sadly, went downhill from there.
