Forced to remain in San Francisco after the murder of her fiancé, Mary Rutledge (Miriam Hopkins) takes a job in the saloon of powerful Louis Chamalis (Edward G. Robinson), the man responsible for the death of her intended. One afternoon while riding, Mary meets Easterner Jim Carmichael (Joel McCrea) and, attracted to him, pretends that she is a lady.
