When a drifter starts working for a female rancher, he quickly finds himself in hot water with a crooked ranch foreman out to rustle not only her cattle but the pert employer herself. The story (probably courtesy of director Louis King) was old hat even by 1924, but stars Bill Patton, Peggy O'Day and Lew Meehan made it work once again. Meehan especially was always fun to watch. Arguably the ugliest mug in the business, the veteran villain could ham it up with the best of them and even get away with playing coy on rare occasions.
