Playboy Franklyn Farnum inherits a Western ranch on the condition that he shall run it properly for 6 months. A villain (none other than Lon Chaney) makes an attempt to distract him from reaching the goal, but Farnum, no longer the wastrel of yore, persists and becomes full owner of the property. Despite a strong supporting cast -- including veteran vamp Claire Du Brey, the always menacing Sam De Grasse and, of course, Chaney -- Anything Once was deemed only fair entertainment by most reviewers. The rough-hewn Farnum, despite hailing from Boston, was decidedly miscast as a socialite.
