SYNOPSIS

Nan McGrew and Doc Foster, star and owner respectively of a medicine show, are stranded near the town of Wagontrack in the Candian Northwest and there meet Muldoon, who, Helen learns, is about to divide the spoils of a bank robbery. During the performance in Wagontrack, Nan captures the heart of Eustace Macy, who hires the show as entertainment for his Aunt Clara Benson's Christmas Eve party. Muldoon, disguised as Santa Claus, captures Bob Dawes, an officer in the Royal Mounted; but Nan shoots and disarms the villain, who has a price on his head. Muldoon manages to escape from Eustace, a saxophonist. By chance, Doc Foster and Muldoon both appear at the carnival in the guise of Buster Brown; and Crofton, the master criminal, gives the loot to Foster by mistake. Nan recognizes Muldoon, however, and following his pursuit and capture, she wins Eustace as her husband as well as a $10,000 reward. The lovers--Bob and Clara--Are ... +
