This 1922 silent western/drama was directed by Francis Ford and produced by William M. Smith Productions. The cast includes, Franklyn Farnum, Shorty Hamilton, Al Hart, Genevieve Berte and Peggy O'Day. Sadly it may now be a lost film and all I provide the reader with is this original synopsis from Variety, November, 1922.
"This story is based on the struggle for a mine and a battle between the new manager and a gang of claim jumpers. ... First the heroine's father bought an option. Then he was cheated out of it and it fell into the hands of a Denver promoter, who hired Farnum to operate the property. The original option holder and his daughter somehow managed to support a gang of hirelings to prevent the profitable running of the mine. ... In the end the heroine let Farnum in on a secret ledge of fabulous richness. ... Farnum sent for the Denver sharper, but when he arrived he turned against his own superintendent and tried to kill him. Almost succeeded, too. But when Farnum recovered and gave the Denver man a talking to on the subject of mine business ethics, he was ashamed of himself and immediately signed over a half interest in the property to Chiquita, the heroine."
