A well-admired movie cowboy hero, Castle takes advantage of his popular, virtuous on-screen character to break laws and con people into doing his bidding. Accustomed to an adulating audience especially where the ladies are concerned, he thinks little of it when a concerned Abigail agrees to marry him in order to save him from the underground types. No sooner is the wedding announced, when she finds out he is just using her, but little does he know she has a plan to get even!"--Container
