A young man is raised in the mountains by his prizefighter father. Although he possesses great strength and athletic skill, he is completely out of his league when it comes to women. He becomes a successful boxer in San Francisco and is given the name "The Abysmal Brute". When he rescues a drowning man, he meets a beautiful socialite named Maude Sangster and falls in love. His lack of social skills proves a hindrance when a rival suitor competes with him for Maude's affections. Written by

A Jewel Production. Universal, lacking its own theater chain, devised a 3-tiered branding system to assist marketing its feature product to independent theater owners: Red Feather (low-budget programmers), Bluebird (mainstream releases) and Jewel (prestige productions). Jewels were produced in hopes of drawing higher roadshow ticket prices, a tactic that would sometimes misfire. Universal ended brand identifying its features in late 1929. See more
