In this charming silent western parody, former stage comedian Billy Jim (Fred Stone, the scarecrow in the original Broadway version of The Wizard of Oz) masquerades as a cowboy to infiltrate a gang of crooks pursuing a lovely mine owner (Millicent Fisher). A sort of poor man's Will Rogers (complete with homilies and a drawl), Stone would have more success in the sound era.
