Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Filmed on magnificent locations at Cedar City, Utah and Zion Canyon, this lavishly mounted Tom Mix Western was based on The Orphan by Clarence E. Mulford, the pulp writer who created Hopalong Cassidy. The story -- a man searches for the villains who murdered his parents -- was by no means new in 1925, but Mix's patented vim and vigor made it seem fresh as a daisy. During the search, Mix's Orphan gets a reputation as an outlaw himself but manages to stay one step ahead of the law. That is, until he is befriended by a kindly sheriff (DeWitt Jennings) and falls for the man's daughter (Doris May).
