Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
In his second of four low-budget Westerns for Poverty Row company Beaumont Pictures, veteran silent screen star Conway Tearle played Steve Harper, a crusading newspaperman who not only battles the rough elements of a Western town but manages to catch the villains who killed his uncle. At age 57, Tearle was an odd choice for B-Western stardom but the veteran actor nevertheless performed most of his own stunts and was only defeated by subpar production values. Favoring action over character development and plot, The Judgment Book was directed by silent era serial star Charles Hutchison.
