Ethnic comedies and melodramas were popular in the late 1920s, a fashion only heightened by the enormous popularity of the Broadway play Abie's Irish Rose. Even Universal cowboy Hoot Gibson went the route, playing an Irishman befriending an old Jewish peddler (William H. Strauss) and his daughter (Chaplin discovery Georgia Hale). Gibson is a rodeo performer who helps the peddler against a nefarious rival (Frank S. Hagney). Naturally, the story takes place out West.
