Western fans got two stars for the price of one in this low-budget oater produced by Benjamin F. Wilson. William Fairbanks and Edmund Cobb play a couple of drifters who, on their way to Alaska, take a break in a lawless town run by a ruthless triumvirate (Joseph W. Girard, Wilbur McGaugh and Claude Payton). Glory Sillman (Ena Gregory) has accused the three villains of having killed her brother (Ashton Dearholt), and the two drifters take the same position. They are kicked out of town but return with a neighboring sheriff. Rounding up the villains, the two friends decide that the town is actually quite nice and plan to stick around for a while. Hoping to change the downward direction of her career, Australian-born Ena Gregory later changed her name to Marian Douglas but continued to find herself trapped in low-budget fare.
