In his final film for Thomas H. Ince's New York Motion Picture Company, Harold Lockwood played a young man who enlists in the Confederate Army, along with rival Ray Myers. Though mortally wounded during a skirmish, Lockwood manages to heroically save his rival's life. Following this film, Lockwood signed with The Selig Polyscope Company before gaining his greatest popularity opposite blond May Allison for the American Company of Santa Barbara, CA. Lockwood, sadly, became one of the most prominent victims of the 1918 flu epidemic.
