For many years of the early silent film era Helen Holmes was a hard working Serial Queen with only Ruth Roland and Pearl White having greater popularity within that genre, her specialty being action melodramas with a railroading background, generally including the chasing of villains along the top of fast-moving rail cars, or bounding from same onto horses, along with other athletic stunts. However, in this film the Amazonian actress has slowed perceptibly with the years, one leap over a balcony and a timid ride along the side railing of an engine being the only references to her former physical prowess, as her co-star, tall German actor Henry Victor, is saddled with the rough stuff and Holmes winds up the final year of her career in silents giving a lacklustre performance. The story places Victor as Jack McDermott, a Federal agent, into "Middletown" in order to find the headquarters of a counterfeiting operation apparently centered at the rail station where Holmes, as Helen Wainwright, is manager and where she is framed for the crime by the actual culprit, a co-worker played by William Lowery. There are several subplots, handled in a cursory manner and apparently written for some sort of (woefully inadequate) comic effect, featuring a hobo sidekick of Jack, "Overland Ike" (Georgie Chapman), who is only irritating with his attempts at humour; Jack and Helen share the duties of quelling the ne'er-do-wells, although by then we are past caring. The picture is directed by prolific J.P. McGowan, former husband of Holmes who is at the helm of the majority of her outings, and is one of the most shabbily produced efforts of his career; although he churned out these adventure productions by the bucketful, seldom does one see such sloppy details as with this affair, with inconsistent dialogue, poor titles, and flaccid direction, its short length being its sole merit.
