Rejected as husband material by a snobbish rancher (Ethlyne Clair), cowboy Tom O'Brien (Tom Tyler) nevertheless comes to the girl's rescue when she is besieged by villainous brothers Bill and Bull Driscoll (Lew Meehan and Harry Woods). The ranch, it appears, is situated on a rich marble deposit that the brothers covet for themselves. Tyler, of course, proves himself worthy of the girl's trust by apprehending the brothers, doing so after a well-mounted climactic chase. A latecomer in the silent Western sweepstakes, Chicago-born Tyler made a strapping hero, and FBO guaranteed his success by surrounding him with genre specialists such as writer Oliver Drake, titler Helen Gregg, and cinematographer Nick Musuraca.
