Cast & Crew
Steve O'Dare, a western rancher with little use for the effete East, is forced to go to New York on business and wires his club begging the crowd to provide him with a little action. On the train to Manhattan, Steve is attracted to a beautiful and mysterious woman, whom he later sees at a nightclub. In order to close an important deal, Steve goes to the house of Count von Eckmann, where he once again encounters the girl, who is screaming for help. Steve is forced to fight off a gang of criminals, knocking some out and shooting at others. After a series of fistic encounters and strange disappearances, Steve fights his way to the dining room of Eckmann's house, where he finds the entire company of "criminals" at a formal dinner. Realizing that he has been on the receiving end of a practical joke, Steve grabs the girl and takes her off to visit a preacher.
This film is a remake of a 1916 Fine Arts Film Co. production of the same name, directed by Allan Dwan and starring Douglas Fairbanks and Jewel Carmen (see ^AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1911-20 ).
