A young Bostonian (Johnnie Walker) travels West to expect his father's New Mexico estate, which has become a target for gun runners. Along the way he mistakes travelling stock company actress Madge Bellamy for a child and brings her to the ranch. (The mistake is understandable as Bellamy was playing Little Eva in Uncle Tom's Cabin at the time!). The gun runners are indeed using the estate as their launching pad, but hero Walker grits his teeth and manages to bring the gang to justice, winning Miss Bellamy in the process. A handsome light leading man with dimples, Johnnie Walker was better known for a series of pleasant comedies than rough-and-tumble western fare like this.
