Inasmuch as J. Warren Kerrigan was (in the eyes of his female fans at least) the embodiment of virility, the actor was ideally cast as the title character in A Man's Man. Based on a story by Peter B. Kyne, the story concerns a young adventurer named John Stuart Webster (Kerrigan), who heads to Central America in hopes of striking gold. Instead he becomes involved in a banana-republic revolution, fighting side by side with his old pal Billy Geary (Kenneth Harlan). When not fending off their enemies, Webster and Geary vie for the affections of fair senorita Dolores Ruey (played by Kerrigan's frequent screen vis-a-vis, Lois Wilson). An unexpectedly slim Eugene Pallette appears as the obligatory blustery Latin American capitan.
