Robert Thornby plays Red Rube, a vicious outlaw who shoots sheriff George Stanley on approach. However, when he comes across the sheriff's young daughter in the waste, whither she has been abducted and abandoned by an Indian, that is another matter.

With the success of the Broncho Billy series from Essanay, Vitagraph responded by producing their own westerns under the direction of Rollin Sturgeon. However, while the Broncho Billy series were a varied bunch of pictures which even spun off a series of comedy westerns, the Sturgeon unit stuck pretty much to the standard formulas. Indeed, they are pretty much stereotypes of the B westerns that modern revisionists deplore, with evil Indians and inherently moral White cowboys.

Although the camera-work on this one is superior, the story isn't much. If you wish to see it, you can find it on the Eye Institute site on Youtube.
