Brian is a young woman from the east who comes to claim her late brother's ranch. Arlen, a drunken cowpoke, meets and falls madly in love with her. It turns out his best friend was her murdered brother, and he does a quick sober-up job to impress her. Kohler is the leader of some bad guys

who want to take over the ranch but are stopped by Arlen. This could have been a standard western programmer, but maintains a freshness not normally found in horse operas. There's a good deal of humor and slapstick, though none of it is overdone or detracts from the plot. Some good performances

and brisk direction (with two men in the director's chair). This was the third version of the Grey novel; silent versions were made in 1918 and 1925. A fourth version was made with the same producer in 1940. This was Paramount's first talking adaptation of a Grey novel.
