Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Prominent Viennese stage star Rudolph Schildkraut (Joseph's father) heads the cast of Pals in Paradise. Schildkraut plays a Jewish storekeeper who sets up shop in a small desert gold-rush village. When time comes to elect a sheriff, Schildkraut wins the appointment by default. Though he's determined to rule the town with an iron hand, the old sheriff proves to be a softie at heart by helping along the romance between young miner John Bowers and pretty heiress Marguerite de la Motte (the real-life Mrs. Bowers). He also prevents the girl from marrying an oily crook, who in the end turns out to be the murderer of the heroine's father. Pals in Paradise was based on a story by Peter B. Kyne, of "Broncho Billy" fame.
