Synopsis by Janiss Garza
Hoot Gibson shows off his riding skills in this Western -- in this case, western Canada, where it was shot. Dan Malloy (Gibson) is a champion Roman rider, and, while traveling through Canada, he falls in love with Marie LeFarge (Virginia Brown Faire). Her father (Clark Comstock), however, refuses to give the couple his blessings. Fred Burgess (Jim Corey), a poacher recently released from prison, murders Marie's father. Neenah, Marie's Native American maid (Ynez Seabury), hides Burgess and Malloy is accused of the crime. He flees and finds work at the Bar-O ranch. The mounted police persist in searching for him, but they are unable to track him down. Malloy is compelled to enter the annual Calgary Stampede when his boss' best rider is hurt. He enters the Roman race and wins (the sight of Gibson standing on two galloping horses is truly impressive). M.P. Callahan (Philo McCullough) finally arrests him, but Neenah, who has been betrayed by Burgess, reveals the identity of the real killer and Malloy is freed.
