This obscure silent Western was one of a series produced by Jesse J. Goldburg (the "J." stood for "James," believe it or not!) and starring the tough-looking Franklyn Farnum. This time, however, Farnum was blessed with a couple of well-known leading ladies -- Marie Walcamp, a fearless serial queen of the 1910s, and Priscilla Bonner, a lovely newcomer who would later excel at playing naive urchins. The story itself was perhaps not quite deserving of such star power; Farnum played a Secret Service agent chasing a man who, it turns out, is the father of his sweetheart.
