Kingston Hollister (William Russell) admires Bernice Cleveland (Eileen Percy) from afar. He asks Officer Callahan (Frank Brownlee), the policeman on the beat, about her and mistakenly believes she is a lady's maid. So the wealthy Hollister disguises himself as the cop so he can meet her. The amused Bernice lets him believe she's a maid. But while in his policeman getup, Hollister actually has to battle a con, Jake, "the Priest" (perennial toughguy Bull Montana). Dave McCullough (Wilbur Highby), mayor of Sawtooth, Arizona, just happens to be in town and is impressed by Hollister's work. He asks him to come to Sawtooth and clean it up, so Hollister goes and quickly gets the town back in shape. Then he returns home to discover Bernice's true identity and they are united. This entertaining comedy-drama was directed by Henry King.
