A prospector's unhappy wife (Alice Calhoun) takes in, cares for and later comes to love a man (LeRoy Mason) who is unjustly accused of a killing. The true killer, however, turns out to be her husband (Ethan Laidlaw), a fact the audience spotted long before the characters caught on. This basically silent western came augmented with a few sound effects and offered an early sympathetic portrayal by LeRoy Mason, a dapper-looking actor more at home playing smooth-talking villains. In fact, had the film been made only a few years later, Mason, whose darkly good looks were almost too sinister for heroics, would undoubtedly have played the murderous husband.
