"Bare-fisted" Gallagher ( William Desmond ) arrives in the San Rafael valley to locate the Eagle mine left to him by his uncle. He becomes attracted to Jem Mason ( Agnes Vernon ), a woman dressed in male attire, who shoots off his hat. Gallagher arouses the jealousy of Aliso Pete ( Frank Lanning ), the general store proprietor, and later Gallagher rescues Jem from Pete's sexual advances. Gallagher goes to settle matters after he learns that the Eagle mine belongs to Selby Mason ( Arthur Millett ). Gallagher also discovers that the bandit, whose trap he has set for that night, is Mason's daughter Jem. Attempting to avert a tragedy, Gallagher arrives just as the bandit is shot by Gallagher's agent. The bandit is Aliso Pete who has beaten Jem to the robbery in order to place the blame on Gallagher, who is now free to court Jem.
This 1919 silent western was produced by Jesse D. Hampton Productions and starred William Desmond. The status of this film is know listed as unknown, which sadly suggests it may now be a lost silent. Hopefully it survives for public viewing.
