Joe Clifford, a young actor who wanders the West reciting Shakespearean soliloquies on village squares, inherits from an uncle a gold mine and going to possess it, discovers that the mine has been taken from him in a swindle by town boss Berg. It seem Mr. Berge has registered the deed, but Joe soon learns that it was extorted from his uncle by violence. The crook, of course, tries to get rid of Clifford, but he is ably assisted by a brave barber and they succeed in the end after a furious gun battle, to eliminate Berg’s henchmen and take back possession of the mine, though, Joe prefers to leave the country forever.
