This simple comedy drama was adapted from a serial in the Saturday Evening Post, but the film itself doesn't seem to have enough story to have run over several issues of a magazine. Jublio (Will Rogers) is happy with his lazy life as a hobo, but one day when he goes begging for food at a ranch, ranch-owner Jim Hardy (Charles French) insists that he work for his meal. This suggestion would normally have no appeal for Jublio, but when he sees the luscious pie being made by Hardy's pretty daughter Rose (Josie Sedgwick), he not only agrees to do manual labor for the first time in his life, he sticks around for more. After helping Hardy out of a fix or two, the former hobo marries Rose. It seems odd now that attempts were made to turn witty Will Rogers (at the time a Follies phenomenon) into a silent star -- his forte was the spoken word. But then, opera divas such as Geraldine Farrar became silent successes, so perhaps it wasn't so far-fetched. True worldwide fame for Rogers, however, would have to wait for radio and talking pictures.
