Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
The second version of novelist Henry Herbert Knibbs' western romance Overland Red, previously filmed in 1920 under that title and starring Harry Carey, The Sunset Trail featured veteran action star William Desmond as a disgraced former sheriff who saves a miner from dying in the desert. Desmond is rewarded with a map of a lost gold mine and, eventually, the miner's lovely daughter (Lucille Hutton). Along the way, he clears himself of a bank-robbery charge and catches the real culprit.
