Synopsis:
A lengthy feud between the Pritchards and the Carsons appears to be ending when Will Carson plans to wed Marjorie Pritchard. However, the feud reawakens when a motion picture company arrives in Carson's Corners to film the life story of the town's first marshal, Wild Bill Carson - who the Pritchards believe was a thief and outlaw because he was killed while swooping into town on a marauding expedition. The Carsons claim Wild Bill pretended to join up with the outlaws in order to capture them. Only when the original situation seems to recreate itself does the feud finally come to an end in Carson's Corners.
