Possibly adapted from Money and Matrimony (1925), this cowboy musical drama saw George Wallace appear as one of his most popular characters, Dangerous Dan McGrew. The Brisbane Courier records that Dangerous Dan
'has been holding up the peaceful residents in the mountainous country of the west, where the cowboys flourish, and his unlawful aptitudes furnish the material for an hour of fun and frolic. The sheriff is after him and enlists the aid of the company at the Golden West Hotel - a company whose members prove to be not quite so innocent as the surface indications would lead one to believe... In the wild and whirling incidents connected with the pursuit of dangerous Dan, in the mountain roads [the audience is presented] in the intervals with pistol shots and songs such as "Bring a Friend for Me" (Fanning), "Gimme Me Hat and Coat" (Wallace), "Somewhere in the World" (Nyman) and "Roaring Days of '60" (Crosby)' (18 January 1926, p.10).
A 1930 Age review further indicates that 'most of the action takes place at 'Peaceful Pete's Saloon, where revolver shooting, dancing, songs, music and comic situations contribute to a crowded, laughter-provoking show' (3 March 1930, p.10).
Musical numbers known to have been incorporated in the 1928 production are 'Get Out and Get Under the Moon' (Jones and chorus) and 'Dear Little Irish Mother' (Crosby).
