The story is about a man named Larry (George O'Brien) who is a drifter. He is traveling by train and at a stop goes to a Rodeo. He sees these guys riding a wild horse and he wants to see if he can do it. Well he falls off and to top it all off, misses his train. So he decides to stay behind and work on ranch.

Another George O'Brien Gem
This re-make of the 1924 production of the same name is a very good George O'Brien vehicle. Producer Sol Lessor, who produced the original as well, re-made this on location in St. George Utah to good advantage. It's also obvious from the jumpyness of the film that a lot of hand-cranked original footage was re-used in the re-make. However you've got likeable, smiling George O'Brien as a "Rambling Wreck From Georgia Tech", who saves the day. Winsome Dorthy Wilson as the rancher's daughter and Paul Kelly in one of his earliest best friend/rival rolls that he did so well over the years, and Harry Woods as the villain of the piece. So what's not to like. This is a little forgotton gem that you may need a little patience to watch, but it's worth it. Enjoy.
