Description by OLDIES.com:

Cowboy Tex Sherwood arrives in a small Montana town to claim the land he has inherited. Crooked banker Asa Holman is aware that the new dam being constructed there could bring in millions and plots to steal the property. Tex eventually learns the truth from Carolyn Jordan, who's supervising the building of the dam - but it might already be too late for him to stop Holman and his gunmen.
Champion rodeo rider and former circus performer Ken Maynard had only been working in motion pictures for a year when independent producer/director Clifford S. Elfelt contracted him to appear in six low-budget Westerns released during 1924 and 1925. The first of these, $50,000 Reward, established Ken as a high-spirited young daredevil whose feats of horsemanship were second only to those of Tom Mix, the screen's foremost cowboy star. - Ed Hulse

Includes bonus short film, Then Came The Yawn (1932, B&W, 7 minutes).

Product Description:

Ken Maynard's star was still on the ascendant when he made this action-packed Western. It's the usual tale about "the papers" -- the hero's attempt to hold onto them and the villain's desire to get them. The girl in the story is Esther Ralston, who played Mrs. Darling in PETER PAN the same year she made this film. Maynard is Tex Sherwood who hails from -- where else' -- Texas. He has to travel up to Montana to secure the title to a valuable piece of land. An unscrupulous banker who is tied to big corporate interests is just as intent to see that Sherwood misses his deadline. He offers a 50,000-dollar reward to anyone who gets him the papers, so Sherwood finds his hands full trying to alternately elude and fight his foes. Thrown into the mix is Carolyn Jordan (Ralston), who is performing foreman duties on a ranch in place of her sick father (Bert Lindley). Maynard makes it to his destination in time and wins the girl.
