Produced by poverty row's Jesse J. Goldburg (the "J" stood for "James"), this overly complicated silent Western starred Bob Custer and future strip-tease queen Sally Rand in a story of a supposed "half-breed's" fight against an Eastern industrialist. Believing that he is part Indian, Dave Sethman (Custer) battles a powerful industrial conglomerate despite the fact that he has fallen in love with the company president's daughter, Jean Crawford (Rand). The conglomerate is attempting to buy up the surrounding ranch land, and in retaliation, Dave's father (Carlton S. King) plans to rustle the industrialist's cattle. He is mortally wounded by Crawford's evil assistant, Murdock (Lee Shumway), but before dying, he reveals that son Dave is not only adopted, but actually the natural son of old man Crawford (Harry Van Meter) himself. That would make Jean Dave's sister, but Crawford reveals that Jean is actually his adopted daughter, making it possible for the two young people to marry. Directed by action specialist B. Reeves Eason, The Texas Bearcat was released by FBO.
