Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Director John Ford based this silent western on The Girl He Left Behind by Eugene Manlove Rhodes, turning it into a fine vehicle for the veteran Harry Carey as a prospector who strikes it rich but loses his girl in the process. The husband-to-be is Carey's best friend, William A. Steele, a candidate to the office of sheriff. A nasty villain (C. E. Anderson) frames the young man in a murder, but Carey unravels the plot and clears his friend.
