Clocking in at around 48 minutes, this early sound Western starred the strapping Tom Tyler as the heir to a potentially lucrative mine. Everything goes horribly wrong, however, when Tyler's best pal, Bud Osborne, steals the claim to the property. Produced by Syndicate Film Exchange for what appeared to be about $1.99, this basically silent film was augmented by a few scenes of dialogue and a canned music score. This was the seventh of 19 inexpensive oaters that Tyler did for Syndicate and its successor Monogram.
