George Tate ( George Cooper ) is the leader of a band of moonshiners, but he is a good man, possessing the qualities that heroes are made of. His father had been murdered by a half-breed ( Lon Chaney ) and his sister Amy ( Pauline Bush ) was assaulted by the same man. One day, the half-breed led revenue officers to their secret hideout and a battle began. Tate and Neut Haigh ( William C. Dowlan ), who both loved Amy, battled along side her until they were trapped. Realizing that Amy and Haigh were lovers, he let them escape through a trap door and sacrificed himself to give them time to get away.
"Undoubtedly one of the best pictures the Universal has made. The company, Pauline Bush, George Cooper, Lon Chaney, Murdock MacQuarrie and William C. Dowlan play admirably together. The story is of the moonshiners and their war on the revenue men, yet it is different from the thousand or so others of this class." ---Motion Picture News
This short silent drama was directed by Allan Dwan, and sadly now remains a lost silent film.
