Desperate for money, a rancher decides to trap and sell wild horses, using barbed wire. The local Navajo tribe tries to persuade him not to do it.
A rare glimpse of the greatness of the silent western. This is one of the first filmings of the classic Zane Grey story and one of the best. A chance to see why Jack Holt was a major star of silent action movies. Noah Beery is at his most villainous. Highlighted with beautiful photography of horses running wild through canyons and wide open vistas.
