Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Tom Mix played "Clean-Up" Sudden, a drifter restoring law and order to a small farming community run by a corrupt sheriff (Al Fremont) in this typical silent Western. A henchman in league with the dethroned lawman, Scott Mason (Sid Jordan), kidnaps lovely Dorothy Clark (Patsy Ruth Miller), ties her to a tree and sets fire to the Clark ranch. Happily, Sudden lives up to his name and rescues the damsel-in-distress in the nick of time, and the nasty Mason perishes in the flames. For Big Stakes, which should not be confused with Big Stakes, a low-budget J.B. Warner oater released that same year, marked the second and last teaming of Mix with 18-year-old WAMPAS Baby Star Patsy Ruth Miller.
