Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Silent screen cowboy Jack Hoxie returned to the celluloid range after a five year absence with this low-budget Western, the first of six produced by poverty row company Majestic Pictures Corp.. Hoxie, who actually handled dialogue with less difficulty than legend has it, played Panamint Jack, an outlaw suspected of killing Sheriff Rankin (Walter Shumway. Jack saves a ranch belonging to June Taggert (Dorothy Gulliver) from gang leader Faro Black (Jack Trent), earning Faro's enmity. A Mexican outlaw (Chris-Pin Martin) reveals that Sheriff Rankin isn't dead after all but held hostage at the gang's hideout. Jack rescues Rankin, captures the gang, and is revealed to be none other than the brother of Sheriff Rankin and is only pretending to be an outlaw. Hoxie and leading lady Dorothy Gulliver) had appeared together in the silent era, in The Rambling Ranger (1927).
