      Lin McLean ( Harry Carey ) is in love with Katie Lusk ( Betty Schade ),

      a biscuit shooter in a Denver railroad restaurant, he offers her a home in the West.
      A bad drought comes and Katie's husband shows up offering
      to make it rain for six hours for $1,000 and does so, Katie returns to him.
      Lin, now broken-hearted, heads to another town, where he meets a young pal,
      Tommy ( Vester Pegg ), who turns out to be Katie's abandoned child.

      This 1918 silent western was based on the novel Lin McLean, by Owen Wister.
      The film was directed by John Ford for the Universal Film Manufacturing Company,
      starring Harry Carey.

      Sadly it now remains a lost silent film.
