Husky cowboy star Jack Hoxie inherits a ranch in this silent Blue Streak Western from Universal. Unfortunately, he is forced to share his inheritance with Donaldeen Travis (Olive Hasbrouck), a snobbish debutante type who arrives from the East with her mammy (Mattie Peters) and sister (Virginia Bradford) in tow. Donaldeen takes an immediate dislike to the uncouth "Lightning" Jack and spends time instead with smooth-talking neighbor Currier King (William A. Steele). When she discovers that there is a Mrs. King (Carmen Phillips) as well, Donaldeen gives the amorous neighbor his walking papers. With lust in his heart, King kidnaps the girl but she is rescued in the nick of time by Jack, whom she has grown to love. A Six Shootin' Romance was based on a story, "Dashing", by Ruth Mitchell and was one of Hoxie's most popular vehicles. A very young Gary Cooper, still known as Frank Cooper, played one of the ranch hands.
