Directed by French-born Marcel Perez (early silent comedy's Tweedledum), this low-budget silent oater starred Pete Morrison as an out-of-work cowboy who impersonates a ranch owner in order to impress the members of a stranded touring company. The son of the real ranch owner, meanwhile, is blackmailed by a gang of crooks to break into his father's safe, an act ultimately prevented by Morrison and his friends. Produced by William Steiner, this obscure Western also featured Victor Allen, Nelson McDowell, and African-American comedian Martin Turner. The screenplay was provided by the prolific Forest Sheldon.
