Captain November Jones (William Russell) returns to his home in the West after fighting in the Great War and earning three medals for valor. But he's put off by the unstinting hero worship he receives, and when some swindlers try to ruin his reputation by branding him a coward, he is rather happy about it. The only problem is that Nedra Joseph (Winifred Westover), a pretty girl from the East, arrives in town and she doesn't go in for a man with a yellow streak. So Jones has to fight his way into winning back his courageous reputation, an effort that culminates in his saving Nedra's father (J. Barney Sherry) from kidnappers. After that, Jones is a hero in Nedra's eyes -- and, unfortunately, in everyone else's, too. This action-packed picture was directed by the then-up-and-coming Henry King.
