Trading on an implied but non-existent relationship with Douglas Fairbanks, silent screen action hero William Fairbanks (né Ullman) eked out a comfortable living starring in Poverty Row melodramas such as this one. Fairbanks played an Eastern boy travelling West in order to settle a dispute between the father (Alec B. Francis) of his girlfriend, Rosemary (Madge Bellamy), and a nasty ranch foreman (G. Raymond Nye). After the usual Western shenanigans, Fairbanks ousts the villain and gets the girl. Blond, doll-like Madge Bellamy became a major star in the mid-'20s, appearing in popular if overly-sentimental melodramas. Although her career waned after the changeover to sound, she is today only remembered for a "talkie," the horror classic White Zombie (1932).
