Charles Grey (Charles King) is about to be released from prison, & he is still the only one who knows where a quarter of a million worth of the gouvernment's gold is hidden away from his last heist. So the trio known as the Texas Rangers - Tex (Tex Ritter), Dave (Dave O'Brien) & Panhandle (Guy Wilkerson) - decide to smuggle one of them - Panhandle - into jail to befriend with Charles ... & indeed, Panhandle soon becomes Charles' best mate, they become so close that one night, Charles secretly paints the map leading to the gold onto Panhandle's foot ... without Panhandle knowing of course.

Once outside, Charles & Panhandle meet up with Charles' old partner in crime Steve (Jack Ingram) & gang in Ruby's (Kay Hughes) saloo, & they discuss unearthing the gold (with Panhandle, still unbeknowest to himself, being the only lead to it). It soon becomes clear that Steve is trying to pul a fast one on Charles, but when Charles kills  a doctor (Karl Hackett) who has just removed a scar that could identify him, it turns out that he is no angel neither.

Tex & Dave try to arrest Charles for murder, but Steve & gang, still keen on retrieving Charles' gold, guard his & Panhandle's back.

Then though, Panhandle washes his feet,  throws away his old socks. Everything seems to be lost when a cowboy finds & keeps the socks, ignorant to their meaning (there is an imprint of the map on one of them). So soon everybod is huning for Panhandle's sock (& Charles & Steve get it too), & it is found out Ruby's saloon is bzuilt exactly above the gold's hiding place. & while Charles goes digging in Ruby's cellar, Steve & his men just sit back  wait for the gold, determined to shoot Charles once he has found it ... but enter the rangers, who fight the villains & soon arrest them. Only Charles can get away with Panhandle's help,. the gold tucked tightly under his arm ... but Panhandle can trick him ino hiding away right inside a prison cell ...


Rather mediocre series-Western that shows little in respect of originality or inventiveness ... but heroes & villains hunting after a pair of dirty socks, that's at least worth a chuckle or 2.

The Texas Rangers by the way were one of the many cowboy-trios that cropped up as B-Western-series following the success of the Three Mesquiteers. Their original lineup thugh consisted of Jim Newill, Dave O'Brien & Guy Wilkerson, Tex Ritter didn't replace Newill 'till picture # 15.
