Director Lynn F. Reynolds, Western star Tom Mix, and cameraman Benjamin Kline travelled to San Francisco for this average Mix oater based on a story by William McLeod Raine. Mix played Larry McBride, a cowboy who, according to the film's press-book, "goes to city, dresses up to date and gets into thrilling and humorous adventures." Most of these "thrilling and humorous adventures" centered on Ora Carew, whom Mix saves from both a rattlesnake and a wild steer. Veteran sagebrush comic Gilbert "Pee Wee" Holmes was along for the ride, but his humorous antics were a definite matter of taste.
