William Boyd, in his pre-Hopalong Cassidy days, played a variety of roles, but he already was showing a flair for Westerns in this film. Cowboy Jim Burgess (Boyd) leaves the West to do some traveling, and while he's in Italy he meets Polly Graydon (Elinor Fair). They meet up once again in New York, but Jim has other business to attend to -- he finds out that his father has been murdered in a sheep feud. He vows revenge and goes after his father's murderer. He kills the man in an attack, but then discovers that Polly is the heir to his ranch. Although Polly is angered by Jim's actions, she still warns him when she hears of a plot to kill him. The two of them escape the explosion meant for Jim, but the next day they are tied up by marauders. Jim escapes and fetches the law, who round up the bad guys. Jim and Polly are united. Elinor Fair was -- at least for a while -- Boyd's wife.
