Ill-fated silent western star James B. Warner plays a cowboy who stages a phony stagecoach hold-up and kidnapping in order to appear the hero in the eyes of an Eastern girl (Molly Malone) and her aunt (Mathilda Brundage). Unfortunately, real bandits (including future director Harry Fraser) get in on the act, and Warner must rescue the women for real. One of several also-ran cowboys competing with the likes of Tom Mix and Harry Carey in the early '20s, Warner's burgeoning career was cut tragically short when he died of tuberculosis in 1924 at the age of only 29.
