Johnny Burke (Louis Bennison) is a spirited cowboy who winds up sharing a mine with lovely Adele (Virginia Lee), who has inherited her share from her father. She goes back East to visit her aunt (Louise Brownell) and uncle Butler (John Daly Murphy). When she tells them of the mine, they are determined to get their hands on its earnings. Johnny shows up, ruining the aunt's plans to marry Adele off to the Earl of Barncastle. The Earl turns out to be a phony, and he, with the help of his cronies, loots the Butler home and kidnaps Adele. But the valiant and resourceful Johnny has hidden himself in a trunk that the crooks have taken along. Thus he saves the girl and foils the crooks. Johnny and Adele return West, where they belong. Playing a cowboy was nothing new to Bennison -- he had a similar role in a stage play called Johnny Get Your Gun about a year before Oh, Johnny! was filmed.
