Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Silent screen western hero Hoot Gibson played a private investigator hired by a rancher to get the goods on a disagreeable neighbor in this average Universal oater. The villain, as it turns out, is a cunning city-slicker who is buying up land in the valley. An above-average cast that included hayseed comedian Slim Summerville and exotic leading lady Kathleen Key made this another winner for Gibson, who, sadly, lost his director Lynn F. Reynolds shortly after production had concluded. The veteran director shot himself on February 25, 1927.
