Griffith short about Joe (Wilfred Lucas), a drinking and fighting cowboy who falls for a pretty girl (Blanche Sweet) and swears to his friend that he's going to change his ways. That is until he learns that the girl is...展开leaving with her husband (Christy Cabanne). Embarrassed, Joe goes searching for them for revenge but when he finds them both are near death due to lack of water. Will Joe seek revenge or do something good for once? This here is a pretty good Western that goes back to what Griffith was doing in New York and that is telling morality stories. There's a small chase scene, which is pretty well done, although it's no where near a classic scene for the director. The ending is also very well handled and comes off quite good, which is something the director was great at. The three leads all turn in good performances with Lucas stealing the show as the tough guy. Future Griffith star Robert Harron has a brief role.
