Gish is reduced to mediocrity in this film. She plays a woman trapped in an arctic cabin with a band of outlaws. While she is suffering from weather-induced illness, the gang members draw lots to see who will possess her. Things look dismal for her until gang leader Laughton takes pity on

her, undergoes a change of heart, and helps her escape, only to be killed himself in the attempt. Gish's stylized gestures served her better in the silent days. Production values are bad, with the sound of a wind machine often drowning out the dialog. Six years later the film showed up as a

35-minute short under the title WANTED MEN and was shown on a bill with MR. DEEDS GOES TO TOWN. Both Gish and Laughton ignored the American "premiere" of WANTED MEN, but Osterman, a secondary character in the film, did not. He had acquired a name on Broadway as a comedian and didn't want this

ghost from his past coming back to haunt him. Upon learning that the film was going to be shown, he raised money to buy it, so he could make sure it wouldn't resurface. Alas, on his way to the theater on the night before WANTED MEN opened, Osterman was mugged and the show went on.
