Shy cowboy Cal Thurman (Owen Moore) falls for sophisticated city girl Georgie May (Constance Bennett) in this, the first of two versions of Zane Grey's story. When Georgie May haughtily rejects the poor cowpuncher, he sets out to stake his claim, gets in trouble with a gang of crooks, and later saves the repentant Georgie May from a forest fire. Code of the West was not one of Grey's better efforts but is worthwhile as a rare glimpse of the glittering Constance Bennett, who, as The New York Times put it, "is not the kind of girl one would expect to find on an Arizona ranch."
