A gambler, played by Dix, thinks he's committed a murder and hops aboard a train heading out of town. The train crashes, and he ends up recovering at the home of Neill, a local minister who mistakes him for a traveling evangelist. Dix quickly assumes the new identity and falls for

Lawlor, the reverend's daughter. All appears well with Dix's new life and romance until the past catches up with him. But he's proven innocent of the crime, and Lawlor forgives him. Though this is a moldy and thoroughly contrived story, it is redeemed through the good production values and

well-paced action sequences. Also, Dix is good in the lead.
