Veteran screen cowboy Harry Carey was getting a bit uncomfortable doing romantic scenes by 1923 and Crashin Thru therefore supplied young Cullen Landis to take care of the more potent love scenes. Carey plays a rancher whose foster son (Landis) is getting too chummy with a gang of obvious crooks. To offer the impressionable boy a more conventional homelife, he takes out an advertisement for a mail-order bride. The rancher gets two replies -- from a mother (Myrtle Stedman) and her daughter (Vola Vale)!
