Hard-working rancher Bruce McLeod (Ed Coxen) loses his wife (veteran screen actress Mignon Anderson) to notorious gambler Fred Cullum (Leo Maloney). Still searching for his wife and child many years later, McLeod comes upon a kind-hearted dancehall hostess (Helen Gibson) caring for a young child that turns out to be his own long-lost offspring. The woman had failed to rescue Mrs. McLeod from the vicious gambler, but had raised the child as her own. Instead of being grateful, McLeod will have nothing to do with what he considers a fallen woman. All that changes, however, when the nasty Cullum returns. No Man's Woman is a Western melodrama harking back to the first decade of the 20th century, and was produced by its female star, Helen Gibson, the former rodeo rider and common-law wife of Universal star Hoot Gibson. The film was re-released the following year as Nine Points of the Law.
