Cast & Crew
Wallace W. Fox
Jack Denton is asked by the U. S. Marshal to investigate a series of hold-ups on the Sierra Stage and find out how stolen gold bars from the robbery are being transported. Jack, whose late father was a marshal killed by outlaws, is given his father's guns to wear and assigned the job of riding the Sierra Stage. When he sees the stage driver signal some men, Jack arrests the man, then follows him to the site of a deserted mine owned by Chance Moore after the local sheriff releases the driver for lack of evidence. Jack gains entrance to the mine and is soon accepted for membership into the gang. He recognizes one of the gang members as Professor Angel, an ex-convict, who tells him that once the gold comes to the mine from the robberies, he melts it down by a secret process, thus making it easier to transport. When Dad Adams, the father of Ruth Adams, a woman whom Jack met on the stage, confides in the professor that Jack is a lawman, the professor decides to join forces with Jack. Soon Moore realizes that Jack and the professor are working together and forces them into a shoot-out. The professor then blows up the mine, killing himself in the process. Jack and his friend Pinky are able to escape by jumping into a river, but are followed by Moore. When Moore catches up to Jack, they fight, and Jack is victorious.
