'Blue Blazes' Rawden is a drama about lumberjack country.  This film illustrates the work of Jack Hoxie, a star of Silent Hall of Fame.

In this film Jack Hoxie still goes by the name Hart Hoxie, which he would change the following year, 1919, to become one of the most famous luminaries of Westerns.
