Based on Jean of the Lazy A by B.M. "Muzzy" Bower, this silent western starred Universal cowboy Jack Hoxie as Jack Douglas, whose father, Frank (Francis Ford), is about to be hanged for a murder he didn't commit. The victim, Bill Croft (Buck Connors), was a notorious gunfighter, whose daughter, Jean (Katherine Grant), believes Frank's innocence and helps the son catch the real killer before it is too late. Second to Hoot Gibson among Universal's coterie of western stars, Hoxie was a real-life former cowpuncher whose riding and roping skill far outweighed any acting capability. Hoxie's half-brother, Alton Stone (later known as Al Hoxie), appeared as Jack's stunt-double in this and several other Hoxie westerns.
