Universal's premiere cowboy star of the 1920s, Hoot Gibson, was in fine form in this pleasant comedy-oater directed by the capable Edward Sedgwick. Lovely (Laura La Plante) is being forced into an unwanted marriage by the villain (Robert McKim), whom she owes money. Usually not one to challenge Tom Mix when it came to elaborate stunt-work, Gibson got into the swing of things this time around, rescuing La Plante literally at the altar, and on horseback, too.
