Rough Riders Buck Roberts (Buck Jones) and Sandy Hopkins (Raymond Hatton) are scouts with a wagon train bringing new settlers to the West plus a wagonload of railroad supplies. It seems though that a certain Indian tribe is after the railroad supplies, so Roberts has the train split ... and sure enough, the one half of the train comes under attack from the Indians and everybody is killed. Only, the attackers haven't been Indians at all, as it turns out.

In the meantime, gambler Jack Carson (Rex Bell) has taken residence in Beaver Lake, a town not far from where the Indian attack took place and which the wagon train has to pass. Only, Carson is not a gambler at all but an undercover investigator in league with Roberts and Hopkins, and he soon enough figures out the town's judge (Robert frazer), his businessman brother Jim (Harry Woods) and strongman Loder (Roy Barcroft) are behind the Indian attacks - so he joins them ... and together with Roberts and Hopkins, he manages to lure the baddies into a trap.

Mona Barrie plays Buck Jones' love interest, a casino operator with a heart of gold.

 

Rather weak B Western that puts surprisingly little focus on the main plot but instead gets way too interested in its supporting characters, turning this more into a wagon train soap opera than decent Western entertainment.

 

By the way, this was not an official entry into the Rough Riders-series, since Tim McCoy, the third part of the trio (besides Buck Jones and Raymond Hatton) was off in Europe to serve in World War II. Still, Jones and Hatton play the roles they also played in the series, with Bell being their new third man. There might have been more movies featuring this trio, but Buck Jones died in a nightclub fire before Dawn on the Great Divide was even released.
