Character actor Russell Simpson earned a rare lead in this average silent western but found himself somewhat dwarfed by the florid acting style of villain Robert McKim. A triangle melodrama, Out of the Dust tells a sordid tale of an officer's wife (Dorcas Matthews who, out of sheer cabin fever, runs away with a trapper (McKim). The husband (Simpson) tracks the couple down and finds his wife working as a dance-hall hostess (read prostitute). Genre specialist J.P. McCarthy both produced, wrote and directed, releasing his little opus on states rights.
