Flower Belle Lee (West) is singing out west in the little cow town of Greasewood at the Last Gasp Saloon. The town is terrorized by a criminal called the “Masked Bandit” (Calleia), who kidnaps Lee. Smitten, she won't reveal his identity and is run out of town, forbidden to return until she is made a respectable woman. She meets “well-to-do” Cuthbert J. Twillie (Fields) on the train and he falls hard for her obvious charms. Lee, recognizing the opportunity to get back to Greasewood and get rich, jumps at the opportunity to become Mrs. Twillie. They return to town as a newly married but unconsummated couple with her forgoing her life as a saloon singer to be a substitute teacher. He has no money despite his claims to the contrary. Constantly frustrated by her lack of passion for him, he resorts to impersonating the Masked Bandit, who is her true love. He winds up being wrongly accused of being the real Masked Bandit and is nearly hanged. She comes forward to set him free of the hangman's noose.
