Cheyenne Harry ( Harry Carey ) arrives in the town of Rawhide, where he befriends cowboy Cimmaron Bill ( Duke Lee ) and Bess Thurston ( Neva Gerber ), who works in the local dance hall in order to support her sick mother. Beau Ross ( Joseph Harris ), the leader of a gang of outlaws, is infatuated with Bess. He soon persuades her brother Jack ( Vester Pegg ), who was fired from Wells Fargo, to join his gang, then abducts Bess. Beau captures Cheyenne, but the latter escapes by overpowering Jack and stealing his clothes. Disguised as Jack, Cheyenne catches Beau, and the two embark on a fifty-mile walk across the desert. When they finally reach the nearest water hole and find it dry, Beau expires, while Cheyenne is rescued by Cimmaron Bill, then marries Bess.
This 1918 silent western was directed by John Ford for the Universal Film Manufacturing Company, starring actor Harry Carey. A copy of this film survives in the Czechoslovak Film Archive and hopefully it will be released for public viewing.
