Screen newcomer Gary Cooper achieved some success as a western leading man in Arizona Bound (1927), and the studio, Paramount, attempted to repeat with Jack Luden, a graduate of the Paramount acting school. Luden was darkly handsome and should have made it as a cowboy star, but this story of a rancher clearing his girlfriend's father of a crime he didn't commit could have been produced by any number of independent producers for a lot less money or come from any one of a dozen independent producers without anyone having been the wiser. The rivalry with his own foreman for the love of a girl was too weak and never went anywhere. Neither did Luden, whose later western work for Columbia in the 1930s would prove just as unsuccessful.
