Rogers, the son of a southern plantation owner, returns to his father's home upon completing his education in Philadelphia. He soon becomes enamored of Collyer, a young southern belle, and they are engaged, though her younger sister, Brian, is also in love with Rogers. Unfortunately,

Collyer's former beau, McGrail, recently released from jail, arrives on the scene and challenges Rogers to a duel. Finding this archaic test of manhood silly, Rogers declines McGrail's challenge but soon finds that the rest of his family takes the duel quite seriously. Shamed that his son has

dishonored the family name, Rogers' father banishes the boy from his plantation. Faced with nowhere to go, Rogers heads down the Mississippi, drifting wherever fate will take him. During his wanderings he meets up with Beery, an infamous scoundrel who takes the youngster under his wing.

Unwittingly, Rogers soon becomes a legend after he knocks out a local villain who insulted him. Now armed with the alias "Col. Blake," Rogers returns to his father's plantation to exact revenge on McGrail and marry Brian. A bit too melodramatic to be taken seriously, RIVER OF ROMANCE was remade

five years later as a musical comedy entitled MISSISSIPPI, starring Bing Crosby, W.C. Fields, and Joan Bennett, this time with better results.
