This silent Western, starring Dutch-born trick rider Marilyn Mills, is remembered solely for an unbilled appearance by a very young Gary Cooper. Cooper, still working under his real Christian name of Frank, was apparently a discovery of Mills and her husband, Gower Gulch producer-distributor J. Charles Davis. Mills, who also wrote this film under her real name of Mary C. Bruning, played Angelica "Trix" Warden, a willful college graduate turned rancher who foils the plans of a gang of cattle rustlers. J. Frank Glendon played Jack Norton, the new foreman, and William Lowery portrayed Buck Barlow, the leader of the rustlers. The real stars of the film, however, were Mills' two horses, Beverly and Star.
