Produced by George Blaisdell for Ben Wilson Productions, this minor silent oater starred pleasant screen cowboy Jack Perrin and his handsome mount, Starlight. Perrin played the title-role, a drifter who saves a young girl from being cheated out of her inheritance by a greedy -- and, as it turns out, murderous -- cousin. A fixture in B-westerns throughout the '20s, Perrin was a pleasant performer whose flair for comedy matched that of Hoot Gibson. Unlike "The Hooter," however, Perrin was never able to break away from low-budget poverty row productions.
