While the village of New Hope Valley is celebrating their 50th anniversary, the state has already decided to condemn it, sacrificing the valley for the greater good, a water reservoir for Metropole City. The settlers though are more than reluctant to give up their homes & fight the contruction company at every twist & turn. The company on the other hand, eager to finish their work on time, has brought in muscle of their own, and it's up to the 3 Mesquiteers (John Wayne as Stony Brooke, Crash Corrigan as Tucson Smith, Raymond Hatton as Rusty Joslin) to prevent an all-out range-war - which they do, even though it means the settlers and the Mesquiteers are thrown into jail temporarily. To make piece between settlers & production company, a group of land developers steps in to promise the settlers new land in Devil's Acres, basically desert land, but promised a pipeline by the time the settlers get there. But of course the land debvelopers are a crooked bunch being in league with the equally crooked construction company, & it seems the water pipeline was never supposed to be built. Literally at the last minute, the Mesquiteers set everything straight again.

 

One of the lesser 3 Mesquiteer-pics, as it gives its leads very little to do, and, apart from a few scenes at the anniversary celebration at the beginning, does not use them as characters at all. The story as such is rather ill-conceived, the plot - complete with a range war & a settlers' treck - cries out for an epic treatment with the action taking back-seat, but this is after all a 54 minute B-Western, and this genre relies largely on fast pace & much action - action that doesn't even start until 15 minutes into the movie, and then it's only very routine (to be polite).

This was by the way the last Mesquiteer-film for both John Wayne (he just landed a major success with Stagecoach a few months back & would go on to do bigger & better things) and Crash Corrigan (who, after being in the first two dozen Mesquiteer-films, left Republic over a salary dispute & because of Bob Livingston's - who he couldn't stand - return to the series to replace Wayne). Corrigan would move over to Monogram, to rejoin Max Terhune, his former pal from the Mesquiteers, to do the Range Busters-series. The Three Mesquiteer-series, however, would go on for another 27 pictures.
