Robert Winchester McTabb ( William Russell ) is a traveling salesman who loves to tell tales, arrives in Yellow Jacket, Arizona selling coffins and cradles with his motto that he "catches 'em coming and going." Celie Sterling ( Eileen Percy ) believes McTabbs lies about his prowess and promises to buy a coffin if he will kill the man she wants to occupy it, Sheldon Lewis Kellard ( Heywood Mack ), who has papers which jeopardize her father's reputation. Celie refuses to comply with Kellard's desires in order to gain the papers. Meanwhile, High Spade McQueen ( J. Gordon Russell ) is angered by McTabb and threatens to kill him. McTabb agrees to kill Kellard, although his cowardliness makes him stay close to Celie for protection. When McTabb buys two horses, he is accused of being a horse thief by a posse, until he proves his innocence. McTabb tells Celie he has killed Kellard, when McQueen has actually beaten him to it. Celie recognizes that McTabb is a liar, but she forgives him after he promises never to lie again.
This 1919 western/comedy was produced by the American Film Company, and starred actress Eileen Percy. Sadly it's status is now listed as unknown.
