Synopsis

The Back Trail
Suffering from shell-shock, returning war veteran Jack Hoxie is falsely accused of being a criminal in this typical silent oater from the Universal salt mines. Unscrupulous Gentleman Harry" King (Claude Payton) has concocted the scheme in order to gain access to Hoxie's inheritance. A veteran stock company actor who began his long screen career in the early 1910s with the Thanhouser Company of New Rochelle, New York, Claude Payton continued to menace cowboy stars until his retirement in the late 1930s. Appearing in a minor role as a tramp was Jack Hoxie's younger brother Al Hoxie, here billed as "Alton Stone." ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Outlaw Justice
Silent screen cowboy Jack Hoxie returned to the celluloid range after a five year absence with this low-budget Western, the first of six produced by poverty row company Majestic Pictures Corp.. Hoxie, who actually handled dialogue with less difficulty than legend has it, played Panamint Jack, an outlaw suspected of killing Sheriff Rankin (Walter Shumway. Jack saves a ranch belonging to June Taggert (Dorothy Gulliver) from gang leader Faro Black (Jack Trent), earning Faro's enmity. A Mexican outlaw (Chris-Pin Martin) reveals that Sheriff Rankin isn't dead after all but held hostage at the gang's hideout. Jack rescues Rankin, captures the gang, and is revealed to be none other than the brother of Sheriff Rankin and is only pretending to be an outlaw. Hoxie and leading lady Dorothy Gulliver) had appeared together in the silent era, in The Rambling Ranger (1927). ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
