Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Bob Custer, a lesser but still popular western hero of the silent era, heads the cast of Man Rustlin'. This time, hero Buck Andrews (Custer) is accused of being a cattle rustler, though of course he's innocent. Buck allows the crooks to think that he's as dishonest as they are, the better to trap them at their own game. Somehow he also finds time to woo pretty new schoolmarm Mary Wilson (Florence Lee). The fellow responsible for writing the subtitles in Man Rustlin' was apparently an old-line newspaperman, inasmuch as he was able to pull off a few extraneous but amusing "inside" jokes at the expense of publishing mogul William Randolph Hearst.
