Directed by Hollywood stalwart Richard Thorpe, this average silent western starred Wally Wales (aka Hal Taliaferro) as a ranch hand who falls for his pretty boss (Violet Bird). The girl, however, can't make up her mind whether she prefers Wales or a slick visitor from the big city; until, that is, a gang of cattle rustlers decides for her. Produced by Lester F. Scott, Jr.'s low-budget Action Pictures, the Wally Wales oaters were lighthearted romps thoroughly geared toward second-run houses and rural audiences. Fairly good-looking, Wales was a tight-lipped, sullen type of western star and would actually do much better in character roles in the sound era.
