Walter Long as Boston Blackie
Hairpin Harry Dutton (Hart) is released from prison after serving ten years of a fourteen-year
sentence. His old friend Boston Blackie (Long) takes him to San Francisco where he learns that
Polly (Hansen), the wife he believed to have faithful, has divorced him and married the policeman
who testified against him. He meets his ten-year-old son surreptitiously and they become
great friends. Polly learns of his presence, and her husband promises to "plant a gun on him"
and send him back to prison. The boy hears this and innocently tells his father in time. Harry
then goes to the detective's home and is about to brand his former wife on her cheek for her
faithlessness when his son intervenes and asks Harry to take him away. Harry leaves the woman
unharmed and takes his son, and they find happiness in the wilderness.
