~Plot Synopsis~
Larry Lannigan (William Russell) is the lumber foreman in a lawless Western town. Thirty years earlier, his
father (George Nicholls) and other law-abiding citizens had kept things under control by organizing a group
called the Iron Riders. Larry decides to bring this tradition back. He shrouds himself in the black gown of the
Riders and thus disguised, walks into a courtroom and forces two witnesses to tell the truth about a murder.
Since no one knows who the Iron Rider is, Jim Mason (Arthur Morrison) and the crooked Sheriff Donovan
(Wadsworth Harris) decide to use the ploy to their own ends. The sheriff covers himself in a black sheet, closes
up the local saloon on Sunday and robs the cash register. Larry's father thinks his son is responsible and Larry
refuses to accuse the sheriff since he is the father of Mera, the girl he loves (Vola Vale). He's forced to leave
town, but eventually, after he saves Mera from yet another villain, he is proved innocent.
