A case of mistaken identity makes life a bit dodgy for a young rancher in this good-natured silent Western from assembly-line company Action Pictures. Travelling West to help his aging uncle run a large ranch, Wally Blake (Wally Wales) is framed for a crime and locked up. Since the uncle, Dad Burns (Alfred Hewston), never met his nephew, the old rancher is not suspicious when outlaw Matt Harris (Charles "Slim" Whitaker) shows up claiming to be Wally. When the real nephew finally arrives, he finds Harris about to abscond with the cattle. Using both cunning and brute force, Wally beats the villain at his own game and even wins the affection of Harris' innocent sister Sally (Jean Arthur). Miss Arthur, who was billed under her real name, Gladys Greene, in Tearin' Loose, appeared in nine other Westerns for Action Pictures and producer Lester F. Scott, Jr..
