Yet another heroine faces yet another forced marriage in this typical Fred Humes oater, produced, cookie-cutter style, by Universal. Humes, as Tom Evans, and his companions, Shorty Mullins (Pee Wee Holmes) and Tradin' Sam (Ben Corbett), rescue lovely Helen Turner (Gloria Grey) from being harrassed by Lannister (Tom London) and his men. Despite his defeat, Lannister attempts to persuade Helen's father (Harry Semels) that he, Lannister, is the right man for the girl. Refusing to take "no" for an answer, the villain kidnaps Helen, while his compatriots attempt to keep Tom at bay. Threatening to kill her father, Lannister finally gets his long awaited "yes," but Tom and his friends arrive to change the wedding plans once again. Humes sidekicks, the diminutive Holmes and rustic-looking Corbett, also starred in a series of mild Western comedies under the umbrella titles of "Piperock Stories."
