Synopsis

Cheyenne Harry, a ranch foreman, falls in love with Molly Malone, the boss's daughter, and she confesses her love in return. A sophisticated stockbroker named Thornton, however, soon lures Molly to the city, but she sends for Harry after learning that Thornton's intentions are not honorable. Harry befriends some crooks in the city, and with their help, locates Molly dining with Thornton in a cabaret. After a lively fight, Harry defeats Thornton and escorts Molly back to the ranch.

Notes

According to publicity for the film, Harry Carey fractured a rib during a fight scene. Carey played the character "Cheyenne Harry" in many other films. Some reviews credit both Ford and Hively with the story. Some reviews call this a Butterfly production.
