Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Separated during an Indian raid, childhood pals Tim McCoy and Robert Frazer grow up on each side of the Indian Wars in this fine silent Western produced by M-G-M. McCoy becomes an Indian Scout working for the cavalry, while Frazer stays with the tribe and takes the name Lone Eagle. The two meet when the father of McCoy's girlfriend is taken prisoner by the Indians. At first at logger heads, the boyhood friends finally put down their weapons and Lone Eagle rejoins the white man's world. McCoy's leading lady in this film, Australian-born Marian Douglas, had previously worked under her real name, Ena Gregory.
