Billed semi-apologetically as "Another Rupert Julian Production," The Savage is set in the Great Canadian Northwest. The daughter of a trading-post proprietor, Marie Louise (Ruth Clifford) is poised to marry Captain McKeever (Allan Sears) of the Mounties. But if the "savage" half-breed Julio Sandoval (Monroe Salisbury) has anything to say about it, the marriage will never take place. Intending to kidnap the heroine and carry her off to the mountains, Julio has a sudden change of heart and returns her to her father. Later on, Julio proves that he has utterly reformed by rescuing Captain McKeever from an ambush, losing his own life in the process. Up-and-coming Colleen Moore had a semi-comic role as the heroine's school chum.
