Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This satisfying George O'Brien western was released in most markets as Whispering Smith Speaks. O'Brien is "Whispering" Smith, so named because he speaks softly but knows how to fend for himself. The son of a railroad president, Smith is determined to learn the business from the ground up, so he gets a job as a track walker for his dad's rail line. While going about his duties, he meets Nan Roberts (Irene Ware), who is about to sell her Colorado ranch. Smith finds out that there are valuable tungsten deposits on her land and makes certain she won't be cheated by the villains. The rip-roaring finale finds Smith commandeering a locomotive so that he can file his claim in Denver ahead of the bad guys.
