Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
In one of his very first starring Westerns, Jack Hoxie plays a drifter falsely accused of being a masked bandit. Visiting the widow Larson (Evelyn Selbie), "Devil Dog" Dawson (Hoxie) stumbles over a clue that eventually leads to deputy Buddy (Wilbur McGaugh) as the culprit. About to be exposed, Buddy kidnaps the sheriff's daughter, Mesquite (Helene Rosson). In rescuing the damsel in distress, Dawson discovers that the mastermind behind the recent trouble is not deputy Buddy at all, but the Widow Larson. For some unknown reason, producer-director Benjamin F. Wilson credited camera man King Gray and supporting actor William J. Dyer with the joint direction of this film.
