Driven out of town by the local bully, Universal's rumpled cowboy star Hoot Gibson hops a freight train, only to be declared a hero for shooting a couple of fleeing bank robbers. The noble deed was actually performed by the train's brakeman, but Gibson is made deputy sheriff. Assigned to bring in a couple of cutthroats, Gibson discovers that their ringleader is actually his new girlfriend's wastrel brother (Harold Goodwin). The film's heroine, brunette Beatrice Burnham, also appeared opposite Buck Jones and Tom Mix. She played "Millie Erne" in the 1925 version of Riders of the Purple Sage before retiring from the screen to marry.
