Storyline

Kerrigan is the foreman of an oil field, brutal to the men under him, to animals, to his own sister and to his sweetheart. He is the rough boss of a rough set of men. The owner of the oil field dies and leaves the property to his daughter. She comes to look over the field and is thrown in close contact with the brute. She reads deep into his nature and shows a disdain for him, although deep down in her heart she admires the primitive, forceful elements of his character. On the other hand the foreman learns to feel deeply for the girl, and is cut to the quick by her disdain. The story does with the smoothing out of the foreman's character until he is tamed and out-bullied by something greater than physical strength. The story ends with the suggestion of love to come.

17 February 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

J. Warren Kerrigan, as the brutal foreman of a gang of men employed at an oil refinery, plays the leading man in this drama which has for its purpose the evolution of the foreman into a decent, lovable man.
