Blond Eva Novak and B-Western hero William Fairbanks (no relation to Doug) starred in this minor silent railroad melodrama. Novak played Margaret Hill, whose ticket booth at Warwick station is robbed by a couple of disgruntled railroad workers. Her fiancé, Jack Adams (Fairbanks), gives the villains a sound beating and the two malcontents decide to blow up a railroad bridge. Margaret learns of the plot, but has her hands full saving younger sister Mary (Marion Harlan) from a fate worse than death in the hands of lecherous Walter Bradson (Jack Byron). She forces Bradson at gunpoint to drive her to the endangered bridge, but collapses on the tracks from the overall strain. The stalwart Jack, however, arrives in time to save his girlfriend and warn the train of the impending danger. Reading like a recycled episode of the once popular The Hazards of Helen series, this low-budget effort was released and distributed by producer Harry Cohn's C.B.C Film Sales, a struggling company commonly referred to as "Corned Beef and Cabbage."
