George Walsh starred in this action-melodrama from Fox about a blind girl, Betty Reed, who is the sole "witness" to the murder of a mine owner and whose mistaken testimony convicts Sid Allen (Brigham Royce), her own benefactor. Years later, the adult Betty (Edna Murphy) returns to the mining town, her sight restored. Fearing that she may remember the truth, the real murderer, "Bull" Snide (Byron Douglas), has the girl kidnapped. She is saved in the nick of time by Dynamite Allen (Walsh), the son of the man wrongfully accused. Do Betty and Dynamite fall in love despite their past? Why, of course they do! Rotund comedian Billy Gilbert adds a bit of relief to the overall tension of this melodrama directed by Dell Henderson.
