Enid Bennett was given an excellent opportunity to show off her equestrian expertise in the lively western A Desert Wooing. When wealthy cattleman Bart Masters (Jack Holt) comes East, he falls in love with social butterfly Avice Bereton (Bennett). She marries Bart for his money, all the while promising to continue her romance with society doctor Van Fleet (Donald MacDonald). Bart knows what's going on behind his back, but he insists that Avice return with him to his ranch and at least make an effort to be a dutiful wife. At first completely useless (she can't even cook!), Avice comes to enjoy her new life, and by fadeout time she has forsaken Van Fleet -- who has turned out to be a louse anyway -- in favor of her roughhewn but essentially decent husband.
