FBO's handsome New York-born cowboy Tom Tyler plays a pacifist lawman who only uses his fists and a dangerous-looking whip to battle the bad guys in this pleasant western. Along the way, Tyler's sheriff goes undercover as a bandit to infiltrate the gang that framed pretty heroine Duane Thompson's father Tom Lingham in a murder. As always, the forbidding Tyler is helped immeasurably by the presence of boy actor Frankie Darro and a clever pooch, Beans. Playing Darro's dying father is one Vester Pegg, a veteran supporting player who had been the second actor to portray that endurable sagebrush hero, the Cisco Kid. The vehicle was Border Terror (1919).
