During the silent era, Will Rogers was generally on the losing end of a romantic triangle; this time his good-natured common sense wins out. Although trapper Jim Fenton (Rogers) loves Miss Butterworth (Irene Rich), he thinks that she really cares for inventor Paul Benedict (Raymond Hatton), who has been wrongly locked up in an insane asylum. He is determined to get Benedict out, especially when he discovers that Belcher, the town's most influential inhabitant, has stolen one of his inventions and made a killing off it. With the help of fellow trapper Mike Conlin (Nick Cogley), he makes Belcher confess to the crime. But instead of marrying Benedict, Miss Butterworth prefers to become Mrs. Fenton. This picture was based on the novel Seven Oaks by J.G. Holland.
