After Jack Hoxie scored in the comedy Western, Don Quickshot of the Rio Grande, he was given this picture. Windbag, or Windy, Watkins (Hoxie) is a teller of tall tales. When he arrives in camp, his stories enliven the proceedings (and are hilariously illustrated in fantasy sequences). But then he starts bragging to a stranger about his adventures in Alaska, where his friend Phil Hollis (J. Morris Foster) was killed and he was accused of the crime. Unfortunately, this story hits too close to the truth, as the stranger is a Federal Marshall who intends to arrest him. Watkins is forced to make a quick escape. Luckily he manages not only to find the real killer, but is able to wring a confession out of him. Cleared of the crime, Watkins is able to reunite with his sweetheart, Eunice (Marguerite Clayton).
