In the mountains, the beautiful Nanette waits for her lost love Raoul to return to her. When the villainous Buck McDougall persuades her that Raoul is dead, she consents to marry him, that is until Raoul suddenly turns up at the ceremony right before vows are exchanged. She returns to the man she loves, which angers Buck. He proceeds to frame Raoul for murder. When Raoul and Nanette run away into the wilderness, Buck gets Corporal O'Connor on their trail, since he also harbors unrequited feelings for Nanette and believes she has been kidnapped.

I Love Lon Chaney, BUT . . .
19 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is definitely not one of his better films.

He is cast as the "hero", and a rather bland hero at that. It simply did not offer the incredibly talented Mr. Chaney enough "to do", so he chews the scenery through most of his scenes.

Point to note in this film, the stars were nearly killed in the big fire scene when their escape route was cut off. All three wound up in the hospital.

If you are a Chaney fan you will watch this and enjoy it regardless, but it will not be anyone's favorite Chaney film.
