Synopsis / Plot
After fifteen years as a tramp, shuffling Will Rogers (as Jubilo) hops a train to California and locates the man who ran away with his wife, while Mr. Rogers was at war. Though his wife is now deceased, Rogers meets pretty blonde daughter Marian Nixon (as Rose). En route, he witnessed her step-brother and romantic interest Dick Powell (as Dan Hardy) was involved in a bank robbery. Not knowing he is her real father, Ms. Nixon helps Rogers get a job as handyman for successful politician Frederick Burton (as Judge Hardy), the man who stole Rogers' wife. Rogers can either take Burton's life, or forgive him...
