Important note: This is not a film review. It is my ambition to add as many silent film synopsis of films that have a survival status of unknown or presumed lost. I try to do as much research as I can and it is not my intention to deceive anyone, for sometimes the film does exist and some presumed lost films are still being discovered. I am more than delighted if someone has knowledge of a film listed as lost but survives, as I wish all silent films did survive. I hope the reader enjoys this brief synopsis.
Milt Dale ( Jack Holt ) discovers that Clint Beasley ( Warner Oland ) is scheming to kidnap Nancy Raynor ( Georgia Hale ), who is to inherit a ranch from her dying uncle. Dale outwits the gang by kidnapping the girl himself and taking her to his cabin. Nancy seizes his gun and has him jailed. Distressed over her uncle's death, she is easy prey for the amorous attentions of Beasley; but when she begins to mistrust him, Beasley takes her to his ranch. With the aid of his pet cougar, Dale escapes jail, at Beasley's ranch a struggle ensues, and Beasley is killed. Nancy, realizing Dale's innocence, admits her love for him, and they are united.
This 1926 silent western/drama was based on the novel, Man of the Forest by Zane Grey, produced by the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starring Jack Holt and Georgia Hale. The survival status of this film is listed in the American Silent Feature Film Database as; No holdings located in archives.
