In this tale set in the backlands of the Australian wilderness, Calvert plays the young lad whose yen for mischief motivates local policeman Rafferty to come up with a solution. He promises the boy a new gun if Calvert can keep out of trouble and learn to show respect for the other

members of the community. Calvert undertakes his assignment with the utmost sincerity, but people start to chide him and bet on whether he will accomplish his goal. Real problems erupt when old lady Thorndike is robbed, and she points her finger at Calvert. The film's highlights include first-rate

photography and an effective performance by Calvert. Thorndike adds some flavor in her part as the old eccentric. (Sequel to SMILEY.)
