In one of his better efforts, silent screen cowboy Bill Cody plays Larry O'Donnell, the "Sheriff" of the title, who comes between the Wolf Pack gang and a train loaded with valuable platinum. Sheriff O'Donnell gets conked on the head for his efforts, awakening after a while with the obligatory: "Who am I?" Jeff Bains (Frank Ellis), the leader of the Wolf Pack gang, conveniently accuses O'Donnell of being the brains behind the robbery, convincing the entire town of their sheriff's guilt. But O'Donnell has the proof of Bains' complicity and with the assistance of the pretty and resourceful post mistress (Hazel Holt), manages to capture the gang and unmask the real gang leader. If nothing else, this minor Western entry provided a rare leading role for the grim-looking Frank Ellis, a grim-looking bit part player who usually played unnamed henchmen.
