The handsome foreman comes to the aid of his employer and is charged with murder for his efforts in this workman-like little silent western from assembly-line studio Action Pictures. Buffalo Bill, Jr. (later known as Jay Wilsey), played Bill Demming, whose employer, Lowery (Norbert Myles), is lacking the funds to pay his mortgage. Villains Regan (Bob Fleming) and Burns (Lafe McKee) frame Bill in a murder scheme, but the plucky foreman manages to escape. Impersonating his boss, Bill manages to acquire the necessary funds from Grandpa Lowery (William B. Hertford), with the caveat that he must marry the old man's niece, Alice (Nell Brantley). As the girl is both comely and sweet, Bill readily accepts and is thus able to pay off the mortgage and bring the villains to justice. Director Richard Thorpe later signed a long-term contract with MGM, directing everyone at that studio, from Esther Williams to Elvis Presley.
