John Ford's older brother Francis Ford directed this very minor, independently produced silent western starring Franklyn Farnum and made on location at Tulsa, Oklahoma. More suited to character roles (of which he would later do hundreds), Farnum benefitted from a case of mistaken identity. He was assumed to be related to brothers Dustin and William Farnum, major stars of the early silent screen, but although hailing from Boston like them, there was no connection. Farnum played a mining engineer in Gold Grabbers, hired to run a valuable mine formerly belonging to lovely Peggy O'Day's family. He naturally falls for the girl and decides to work out a peaceful settlement.
