The parents (Horace B. Carpenter)(Vane Calvert) of Smokey Smith (Bob Steele) are murdered while traveling with a wagon train that is attacked by outlaws. Smokey swears revenge but his only possible chance lies in finding the member of the border-gang who took a ring from his father's finger. The sheriff (Earl Dwire) of a nearby border town makes Smokey a deputy after the latter saves his life when outlaws attack a stagecoach the sheriff is escorting. This enables Smokey to find the hideout of the gang that killed his parents, and he, posing as a wanted man, is able to join the gang. He soon incurs the wrath of gang-member Kent(Warner Richmond), who is jealous over the attention that Bess Bart (Mary Kornman, step-daughter of the gang-leader, "Blaze" Bart (George 'Gabby' Hayes), is showing Smokey.

Bob Bradbury Rides Again!
6 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

This one is included as an extra on Alpha's excellent Bob Steele DVD, The Law Rides. Actually, I thought Smokey was the better of these two movies. The often inventive, on-location direction (with fast tracking shots, yet!) by Robert North Bradbury (Bob Steele's real-life dad) was superior to his good work on The Law Rides and the support cast here led here by George Hayes and the lovely Mary Kornman, was absolutely excellent. (Mary was one of the very few female stars of silent shorts who successfully made the transition to sound shorts. She did this – either by design or sheer luck – by opting out of Hollywood towards the end of 1926 and not returning until the second half of 1930). I also found it fascinating that although George Hayes most certainly does not play a "Gabby" character here, he has already developed most of Gabby's persona and mannerisms. Finally, I find it hard to believe that Sam Katzman had anything to do with this movie's production. I can't see Sam working harmoniously with Bob Bradbury at all. If Sam had dared to interfere or offer any of his famous "Lights out in twenty minutes!" dictums, Bob would have had Sam promptly escorted off the set!
