When his grandfather dies, ranchman Jim Dunn (Louis Bennison) becomes an earl overnight. He travels from Wyoming to England to claim his title and meets with no little opposition. Guy Wyndham (Herbert Standing) had befriended the old man and assumed he would inherit the title; the rest of Dunn's distant relatives are horrified by this strange American cowboy. Dunn isn't too thrilled with them either and prefers the servants' company. Led by Wyndham, the family tries to get the documents away from Dunn but are unsuccessful. Eventually, however, the new Earl of Dunhaven is bored with the life of the idle nobility and returns to his Wyoming ranch, a pretty English girl, of course, in tow.
