Cast & Crew
When he was a boy, growing up in the Bad Lands of Dakota Territory, Jimmie Gordon's parents were killed by Tex Wilson, a brutal bandit. Jimmie swore vengeance, and, known only as The Orphan, he has spent the subsequent years looking for Wilson. At last, hot on the trail of the Wilson gang, The Orphan prevents a holdup of the Deadwood Stage but loses Wilson. He meets one of the passengers on the stage, Helen Shields, the daughter of the local sheriff, and accompanies her to town, only to discover that her father is an old friend whom he once saved from the Indians. As the men talk, Helen learns of The Orphan's tragic past, and the two are soon in love. On their wedding day, the venomous Wilson interrupts the ceremony, insults the unarmed bridegroom, and kidnaps Helen. Wilson makes his escape in the Deadwood Coach, closely followed by The Orphan. When the coach breaks down, Wilson abandons the unharmed girl and tries to escape on foot. The Orphan and Wilson fight it out on the edge of a precipice, and Wilson is thrown to his death.
