Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Independent producer-director Ben Wilson was the one who suggested Hartford Hoxie change his name to plain Jack Hoxie. The two met on the serial Lightning Bryce (1919), and Wilson signed the brawny cowboy to a series of 13 cheaply made but fairly popular western melodramas. Wilson even secured European distribution deals for his little oaters, and Hoxie was well on his way to stardom, a stardom that would culminate at Universal in the mid-1920s. The Marshal of Moneymint was Jack's final film for Wilson and was a plain western story about a volunteer lawman (Hoxie) who rids a mining town of the unscrupulous Velvet Joe Sellers (Claude Payton and his gang of claim jumpers. Following this film, Hoxie and Wilson parted ways, the former finding a new home with yet another Gower Gulch producer, Anthony J. Xydias.
