Alec B. Francis,
Bandit Cheyenne Harry ( Harry Carey ) reforms because of the faith placed in him by Molly Young ( Molly Malone ) and her father ( Harry Rattenbury ). Soon, however, Harry is lured from the straight and narrow when he meets his old friend Ben Kent ( Vester Pegg ) and consents to participate in Kent's plan of robbing a stagecoach. During the hold-up, Kent shoots and kills the driver, and before they can escape, the posse arrests both men. About to be hanged for murder, Harry receives a message from his mother ( Anna Townsend ) notifying him that she is coming to visit. The sheriff ( William Steele ) takes pity and postpones the execution to allow Harry to deceive his mother into believing that he is an honourable citizen. After she departs, Harry returns to jail only to be exonerated when one of the occupants of the stagecoach testifies that Kent fired the fatal shot. Freed, Harry returns to Molly and a life of honour.
This 1917 silent western was produced by the Universal Film Manufacturing Company and directed by John Ford and starred Harry Carey. Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
