Heralded as a "Universal Thrill Feature," this minor outdoor melodrama starred Dynamite, one of canine phenomenon Rin Tin Tin's legion of imitators. Veteran actor Edmund Cobb headed the human cast as Captain Tom Grant, a Texas ranger impersonating an outlaw in order to infiltrate a gang of smugglers. Grant gains admittance to the gang's lair by saving outlaw leader Simeon Kraft's lovely ward Jane (Dixie Lamont). Kraft, however, remains suspicious of the newcomer and Grant is about to get himself killed when saved in the nick of time by a stray police dog (Dynamite). The villain, Simeon Kraft, was portrayed by Romaine Fielding, a pioneering actor who had been one of the screen's first cowboy heroes. For unknown reasons, Fielding chose to bill himself Edwin Terry.
