Northwest cattle rancher Royal Leckner finds himself in the middle of another fe-as-ko, this time in 1915 Hollywood. Dreams of stardom for her daughter, Elsie, and for herself entice Royal's wife, E. M., to buy a silent film company. She quickly renames it Royalscope Productions in order to convince her fuming husband it's a gift. When Royal arrives in Hollywood with his two young sons, Chick'n'Tad, everyone gets into the act. Through the homespun storytelling of Royal Leckner, the silent film era of Hollywood takes on a whole new life. A fresh, warm, and funny approach to the Old West—and Hollywood to boot.
