~Plot Synopsis~
Rancher Warren Bronson (Herbert Standing) is plagued by cattle rustlers, so he gets Western
detective Fancy Jim Sherwood (Douglas Fairbanks) on the case. Fancy Jim disguises himself as an
Eastern wimp and easily discovers that Bull Madden (Frank Campeau) is the head of the rustlers. Jim
also falls in love with Jane Forbes (Eileen Percy), a school teacher who has been harassed by Madden.
Before rounding up the rustlers and getting the girl, Fairbanks gives full reign to his usual stunts --
climbing up the sides of buildings, mounting a dashing horse, and other leaps and bounds. This
wasn't a stand-out vehicle for the athletic star, but according to reviews of the day it was entertaining
nevertheless.
