Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
One of the more popular western plots of the silent era detailed the trials and tribulations of a spoiled Easterner growing muscles and character on a tough western ranch. This time around Raymond L. Schrock based his screenplay on a none too original story by B.M. Bowers (AKA Bertha Muzzy Sinclair), and Hoot Gibson took the part of the wastrel son put to work on his father's (Edwin Booth Tilton) western spread. Proving his true worth, Gibson earns the love of the neighbor's pretty daughter (Marceline Day). Day, whose sister Alice also appeared in films, is best remembered today as Buster Keaton's leading lady in The Cameraman.
