Tom Morris, a writer of western novels, receives an invitation to visit "Mystery Ranch", where he will see western men that make his characters look like sissies.Tom and his secretary Percy Jenkins arrive and are soon involved in a lot of staged happenings --- a lynching, a runaway, a fake feud, a chase after horse thieves --- strictly for his benefit. Tom is not fooled at all and ranch owner Mrs. Henderson and her daughter Mary and the ranch hands are ready to give up. Then, two real crooks, Blake and Kern, show up and Tom discovers they are carrying a bag of gold bullion. Tom thinks they are just part of another trick and decides to start playing some of his own.

Did You Know?
This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. Its earliest documented Post-WWII telecasts took place in Boston Saturday 1 January 1949 on WBZ (Channel 4), in Atlanta Saturday 8 January 1949 on WSB (Channel 8) and in Cincinnati where it was shown in 2 parts Sunday-Monday 22-23 May 1949 on WKRC (Channel 11); it first aired in Philadelphia Wednesday 9 November 1949 on WFIL (Channel 6).
