A party of campers return to Tom Stewart's ( Emmett King ) ranch resort to report they have been held up by bandits. Lawrence ( Lloyd Whitlock ), their guide, explains that it is a staged stunt for their benefit, Stewart confirms this and refunds the losses but writes to his old pal Jeff Morgan ( Charles Mailes ), a former gunfighter, telling him of his predicament. Morgan sends his son, Jeff, Jr. ( Hoot Gibson ), a superb rider and dead shot but otherwise an awkward lout, at the insistence of Pauline ( Fay Wray ), Stewart places Jeff in charge of a camping party. Laura Mayhew ( Sally Long ), a city girl in league with Lawrence, sends up a flare signal at night, and while Jeff chases some bears into the woods, Lawrence and his men hold up the camp. Jeff is overpowered in a fight but pursues the men to their hideout and by a clever ruse gets the drop on them. Later, he forces a confession of guilt from Lawrence, and Laura is arrested. Jeff and Pauline are united.
This 1926 silent western was produced by Universal Pictures Corporation, starring Hoot Gibson and Fay Wray, with Boris Karloff cast as a robber. The survival status of this film is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
