Storyline

Bud Noble, a handsome specimen of manhood, is foreman on the Circle "D" ranch outside of Circle City, Idaho, and our opening scene pictures Bud as the cowboy roping and tying a steer. With its bucking bronchos, pitching mustangs, bucking steers, and the biggest novelty ever, the acme of all thrillers, "see Bud bulldog a steer." Only three men have successfully accomplished this feat and lived to tell about it. Then Bud receives a shock. The local operator appears with a telegram. "Your Uncle John dead. You are sole heir to his estate valued at several millions. Come to Chicago at once." The astounded cowboys tumble over with sheer amazement. Bud buys and the scene closes with a characteristic rush for the bar. "One year later" Bud tires of society. We see Bud and his new wife entertaining and our cowboy shows plainly that he is desperately weary of the effete East, then Bud goes to the club and the men he meets there and their conversation is getting on his nerves. "After the theater"... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A cowboy play seems like the real thing
11 January 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

If a good cowboy picture is wanted, Selig is the one to produce it. His company can make a cowboy play seem like the real thing, and this film is no exception. The cowboy who becomes a millionaire is a novelty which will prove attractive, because it is out of the ordinary. His life in his luxurious city surroundings palls on him. and for the fun of it he sends for the whole outfit from Circle D ranch, and when they arrive the fun begins. It is rough-house, but is picturesque, filled with vigorous action, and therefore pleasing to a majority of the audiences. The fortunate man sees the comparison and loses his longing for the old life of the plains and the bucking bronchos. - The Moving Picture World, November 6, 1909
