~Plot Synopsis~
The Tiger Man is outlaw Hawk Parkins, played by William S. Hart. A natural-born hellraiser, Hawk
escapes from jail and heads for the desert in the company of his equally rowdy pals. While
shepherding his chums through the desert wastes, Hawk rescues Rev. Ingram (Robert Lawrence)
and Ingram's wife Ruth (Jane Novak) from dying of thirst. While eluding a band of Apaches, Hawk
manages to separate himself from the rest of his party, forcibly taking Ruth along with him. Intending
to "have his way" with the woman, Hawk changes his mind when he is touched by Ruth's essential
decency. A changed man, our hero dedicates himself to helping Rev. Ingram establish a frontier
church -- using his usual strong-arm tactics to keep the local rowdies from causing any further
trouble for the Reverend and his wife.
