Although best remembered in the mid-1910s for his social commentaries and westerns, Thomas Ince was just as intrigued by colonial tales, as I outline in my book on the producer. With W.H. Clifford he coauthored the two reel The Renegade (Broncho, 1915; reissued in 1922 as African Love), directed by Charles Swickard, with an almost unrecognizable Charles Ray as an English explorer. He is left for dead when one of his men learns of the Englishman's inheritance of a vast estate. Ray=s character is taken prisoner by vicious slavers, but ultimately he is set free by the Arab girl Zirah (Louise Glaum). Back in England, the imposter has taken advantage of the explorer's inheritance to try to compel a marriage with a beautiful girl who loves another. Ray proves his identity, allowing the woman to marry the man she truly loves, while he will return for Zirah.
