Cast & Crew
Frank M. Clifton
A typical western story of " . . . old wagon train days, gangs of thieves who dress as Indians, the menace with a hook for a hand, horses beating up the dust and men beating up each other" ( Variety, 11 Apr 1928). Fred Thomson as Fred, a frontier scout, falls in love with Mary Baxter, who is making her way across the plains in her father's covered wagon. Handy Anderson, the hooked menace, tries to win the girl but is repulsed. He takes Fred prisoner and tries to kidnap the girl. Fred's horse diverts Anderson's attention, and his master, freed, organizes a posse to rescue the girl.
