In one of his better "Blue Streak" Westerns for Universal, Art Acord, playing Bill Bradley, saves Betty Brent (Velma Connor) and her kid brother, Mike (Jimsy Boudwin), from perishing in a forest fire. When word spreads that Betty is actually 18, a committee of citizens, headed by Cliff Barrowes (Edmund Cobb), marches into the Bradley homestead and forcibly removes the children. But Barrowes, whose father holds a mortgage on Bill's property, is soon wooing the girl himself. The girl gets herself kidnapped by a gang of outlaws, but is saved in the nick of time, not by Barrowes, but by Bill and his faithful dog, Rex. Bill receives a reward for rounding up the kidnappers, pays off his mortgage, and marries Betty.
