Cast & Crew
Ira M. Lowry
Al Boyd, a wealthy cattle rancher, falls in love with Betty Swiftmore, the sophisticated daughter of an Eastern packers' trust leader, when they visit him. Betty, who loves Harrison Stevens, of her own social set, just laughs at Al's proposal, but when a lawsuit threatens to ruin the Swiftmores, Betty consents to marry him to save her family. Al's awkwardness among Betty's Chicago friends, and his inability to dress appropriately, cause Betty to remain cold throughout their honeymoon. When Stevens maligns Al's character, Betty goes with him to a cottage in the mountains where, he deceitfully says, his mother and sister are staying. Al follows, part of the way on an iceboat, and arrives in time to stop Stevens' assault on Betty. Although Betty attempts to remain cold, she soon acquiesces to Al's request that they "travel the straight road together."
