Storyline

Harvey Barton, a young cowboy, is happily in love with Kate Bowers, a pretty western girl. One day he calls at her home, shows her a handbill advertising a barn dance to be held at one of the nearby ranches, and asks her to go with him. On his way back to the ranch he comes upon a beautiful young woman, whose horse has met with an accident and Harvey dismounts and bashfully asks her if he can be of any assistance. She accepts his help and invites him to accompany her home. She is inclined to flirt and easily turns the foolish young cowpuncher's head, and the meeting ends with him inviting her to accompany him to the dance. On the evening of the dance Kate waits in vain for her false lover, but is later invited to go with a young rival of Harvey's and she accepts.

When He's Not Near the Girl He Loves, He Loves the Girl He's Near

Broncho Billy is on his way back to the ranch after inviting Anne Little to the dance. He comes across Gladys Field, helps her back to where she is visiting and invites her to the dance. How does that work out in this short film?

Broncho Billy Anderson (who plays a character here who isn't called Broncho Billy for a change) was the first movie cowboy superstar. He always played a rough sort of character, who might be a cowhand in love in one movie or a desperado on the run in another. In this one, it's the former and it's played for laughs at Broncho Billy's expense. It's a simple plot, but there is enough elaboration to make it amusing.
