Stalwart silent screen cowboy Wally Wales comes to the aid of a friend falsely jailed for theft in this average silent Western from assembly-line studio Action Pictures. Barely out of prison, Jim Regan (William Bertram) is arrested once again, this time for the attempted shooting of Denver Dan Norris (Al Richmond), the villain who framed him in the first place. With the assistance of his young friend Wally Weston (Wales), Jim is released once again on the condition that he won't leave town. He goes to the Weston ranch, but due to a misunderstanding he is turned away by Hiram, Wally's father (J.P. Lockney). When Regan is found dead near the ranch, Hiram is accused of murder. Wally's friend "Angel-Face" (Art Winkler) overhears Denver Dan confessing to the killing, thus exonerating Hiram. Bringing Denver Dan and his gang of rustlers to justice, Wally is finally able to romance Regan's lovely daughter, Ruth (Jean Arthur). One of the era's busiest B-Western heroine's, Arthur appeared in six Wales oaters in 1926 alone. The equally busy Wales later changed his name to Hal Taliaferro and became an even busier supporting actor.
