Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Several westerns of the '20s centered around a foppish Easterner toughening up in a Western atmosphere, a role made popular by Douglas Fairbanks in the previous decade. George Larkin -- no Fairbanks by any stretch of the imagination -- portrays the Easterner in this inexpensive version of the tale. Shipped off to the West by his uncle, Larkin encounters the villain (Frank Whitson) who years ago had beaten the uncle. With an inducement in the amount of $50,00, Larkin, who has toughened up in the wild and woolly West, gives the bully a solid beating and wins the admiration of the tough ranch hands. Suffering one of her many career setbacks, top-billed Bessie Love has little to do as the obligatory romantic interest.
