Storyline

Jimmie, Lavoris and Turpentine, three Knights of the Road (Bums/tramps), have just arrived in the West where Two-Gun Joe, the local bad man, surprises them while they eat. The sheriff runs him off but, in his haste to escape, Two-Gun drops a monogrammed pipe. Jimmie picks it up. Molly, on a nearby ranch, is having troubles with her foreman who, when he sees the pipe, thinks Jimmie is the outlaw and gets real peaceful. Impressed, Molly offer Jimmie the ranch-foreman's job. But they haven't seen the last of Two-Gun Joe. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Jimmy Adams had some great gag writers here.
20 June 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While today Jimmy Adams is pretty much forgotten, this film is well worth seeing. And, while he might not have been among the elite comedians of the day, in this film he was blessed with great gag writers.

Jimmy is an Easterner who arrives out west. Soon he meets up with a couple hobos and they become friends. At the same time, a young lady inherits a ranch and the men that work for her make fun of her and treat her with contempt. So, when Jimmy accidentally defeats the leader and then is mistaken for a wanted criminal, the rest of the employees run off and Jimmy and his new friends are hired to run the place. And, by the end, they then managed to capture the real wanted man and save the day again. Does any of this sound funny? No...not really. But the sight gags were terrific. Explaining them to you would spoil them but again and again the writers figured out how to make the most of every scene. See it and you'll know what I mean. Quite good.
