Cast & Crew
William D. Taylor
The mayor of the wide-open Western town of Panamint decides that a church, and a parson to run it, might calm things down, and so he brings in Phillip Pharo from San Francisco. As soon as Philip arrives, the men who control the local gambling interests make plans to drive him out of town. "Chappie" Ellerton, who runs the roulette game, challenges Philip to play and after he accepts, on the condition that Chappie agree to attend services, the new parson has a long run of luck and wins the whole casino, which he converts into a church. Philip's enemies in Panamint report his gambling to the city church officials, who quickly defrock the parson. Feeling no bitterness, Philip quietly retires, and then, during a fire, loses his own life while rescuing one of the men who helped ruin him.
