Vic Dyson Pays
Cast & Crew
Vic Dyson owns a ranch, through which, unknown to him, a railroad is forced to route its right-of-way. Dayton Keever, a local cattle baron who speculates in real estate, hires the Madden gang to drive Dyson off the land. Madden's men stampede Dyson's cattle and cut off his water supply, but he holds firm. Dyson is then responsible for an accident to Keever's secretary, Neva, that leaves her blind, and he takes the girl in when she is deserted by her fiancé. Bitten by remorse for the girl's blindness, Dyson sells his cattle to Keever and deeds his ranch to Neva, with whom he has fallen in love. He then rides off to a showdown with Keever, killing several of Madden's men on the way. He fights Keever and throws him from a bridge into a swift river. Neva, who has recovered from her blindness, rides up and begs Dyson to save Keever's life. After Dyson pulls the cattle baron from the water, Neva tells him that the railroad has offered $50,000 for his former land and offers to share her good fortune with him on a permanent basis.
