~Johnny Get Your Gun~
~Plot Synopsis~
While Bill Burnham is jailed for drunkenly shooting up the town, he receives a letter saying that his
father has died, his sister Janet is about to marry a worthless count, and the family fortune is in
danger. Unable to leave, he convinces his friend, Johnny Wiggins, a motion picture cowboy, to go to
his home in Palm Beach, which Bill left as a boy, and impersonate him. Although Johnny's Western
manner irritates Janet and her aunt, they put up with him because Bill's sanction for Janet's
marriage is needed for her to receive her inheritance. When the count discovers that Johnny is not
Bill, he tries to elope with Janet, but is prevented when Johnny lassos him from his moving
automobile. After Johnny forces crooked broker Milton C. Milton, at gunpoint, to make restitution
for the losses Janet suffered through Milton's bad stock investments, Johnny marries Ruth, the
maid, and leaves, promising that when Bill returns, things will get livelier.
