The Fox company's number two cowboy star (Tom Mix was, of course, top of the heap) Buck Jones starred as a cowboy who comes to the aid of a friend (Ben Hendricks, Jr.) falsely accused of murder. As always, Buck prevails, clears the friend, and wins the girl (Dolores Rousse). Jones sandwiched this commonplace western (based on the prolific Max Brand) between several modern-dress vehicles in which he joined a circus (Circus Cowboy (1924)) and entered a boxing ring (Winner Take All (1924). He was always more believable in western garb, however, and would cease experimenting with straight dramatics in the early 1930s.
