Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Directed by and starring Dick Hatton, this minor silent Western featured Hatton as a sheriff's deputy tracking down a wanted killer. He gets close to the suspect by befriending the young man's innocent sister (Neva Gerber) and later proves that the killing had been in self defense. A rather glum B-Western star, Dick Hatton managed to eke out a living on the fringe of Hollywood's Western scene despite a lack of obvious talent. He died in a car accident in 1931. The Whirlwind Ranger was written by rotund actor Robert McKenzie, who also provided the film's comedy relief.
