This movie starts off pretty good. George O'Brien and Edgar Kennedy are working at a dude ranch to raise money so they can work their gold mine. The have enough... but Evalyn Bostock shows up and George is smitten; she is annoyed at his presumption, but every attempt to take him down a peg results in his being warm, masculine and masterful. While George is trying to make hay, news comes that the mine is a bonanza --but the telegram is read by con man Stephen Chase, who is trying to marry Evalyn for her money. He offers to pay Edgar $25,000 for their mine, which Edgar accepts, except they have to go to England for plot convenience.

The first half of the movie is good, with some nice humor on display, thanks to director Eddie Cline, O'Brien's casual charm and Kennedy's patented slow burn. The last fifteen minutes, however, is all about rear projection shots of London and the inevitable fight between O'Brien and Chase and is pretty much standard.

O'Brien was getting tired of being a western star. The following year, he would cut a deal with George Hirliman that would get him off a horse -- still in action movies that would require him to take off his shirt. That wouldn't last long. Eventually, RKO would buy his contract and put him back in the saddle.
