~Plot Synopsis~
The great silent western hero William S. Hart was no longer in his prime when he produced (for
Paramount-Artcraft) this moralistic tale of a Mountie chasing down the murderer of a saloon
keeper. Along the way, the lawman encounters a gang of robbers and, to gain their confidence,
pretends to rob a bank himself. The ruse works, and he is admitted to the gang's mountain lair.
There, he falls for the sister (Eva Novak) of one of the bandits (Antrim Short). A jealous rival (Leo
Willis) gets wise to the ruse, however, and the Mountie is sentenced to be hanged by the gang
leader. He is rescued, in the nick of time by the girl and her brother. As it turns out, the boy is the
wanted killer of the saloon keeper. Rather than arrest the brother of his beloved, officer Hart nobly
resigns from the force, returning, as an inter title explains, "to his loved one no longer O'Malley of
the Mounted." In accordance with changing tastes, the usually reticent Hart added several scenes
of rodeo excitement to this otherwise average potboiler.
