Carefree sailors Bill Corbitt (Buffalo Bill Jr.) and Chub Barnes (Morgan Brown) win a dilapidated ranch in a poker game and almost immediately run afoul of a gang of stage robbers. Learning the ways of the West in no time, the former gobs not only foil a planned attack on the robbers, but manage to rescue a rancher's pretty daughter (Betty Baker) from the claws of the vicious gang's leader (Walter Maly). One of producer Lester F. Scott's nifty little silent thrillers, The Galloping Gobs marked one of the earliest screen appearances of curly-haired Western villain Robert Kortman, here playing one of the bandit leader's henchmen.
