Velvet Joe Sellers ( Claude Payton ), a sinister influence in the town of Moneymint, attempts to frighten mine owners and thus take over their claims, Jack Logan ( Jack Hoxie ) and his partner seek the sheriff's aid, but he refuses to give it, making Jack a marshal and leaving him to fight his own battle. A nearby claim mined by Mollie Benton ( Andrée Tourneur ) is also threatened, and when she finds Logan in a compromising situation, she believes him to be her persecutor. Unaware of his design, Mollie solicits the aid of Joe in the town, but Jack rides into the saloon and speeds away with her to the mine, where they are followed by Joe and his henchman. Jack convinces her of Joe's treachery, and with her aid, he wins a battle against the men.
This 1922 silent western/drama was produced by Ben Wilson Productions, starring the popular silent actor, Jack Hoxie. The survival status of The Marshall of Moneymint is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
