When an Arizona ranchman (Willard Louis) is elected senator, he heads for Washington with his daughter, Judith Baldwin (Mary Miles Minter). But they leave behind ranch hand Tod Musgrove (Monte Blue), who is in love with Judith. In Washington, two men propose to Judith -- Congressman Hamill (Guy Oliver) and Robert Courtney (William Boyd). Since she doesn't know which one to pick, she puts them to a test at her aunt's woodland cabin. Of course, they both blow it and when Tod shows up, he gets the girl. This picture was based on the stage play by George Scarborough. 19-year-old Mary Miles Minter didn't know it, but in just a little over six months after this picture's release, her career would come to a sudden end -- her former director (and girlhood crush), William Desmond Taylor would be found murdered. While she was never considered seriously as a suspect, her rashly romantic behavior over the deceased director ruined her sweet, innocent reputation.
