In this very slight comedy Western, hero Ned Underwood (William Fairbanks) goes undercover as a dishwasher on a ranch in order to put a stop to a series of cattle rustlings. The leader of the rustlers is actually the ranch foreman (Monte Montague), a fact which is obvious to even the youngest viewers long before Fairbanks and comedy sidekick Billy Franey finally catch on. A minor action star of the late silent period, Fairbanks (real name Carl Ullman) was quickly forgotten after the changeover to sound; so forgotten, in fact, that Douglas Fairbanks Jr. (no relation, of course) claimed in an interview that he had never heard of him.
