Federal agent Tex (Tom Tyler) is sent to De Vina, a small bordertown big on gunrunning, to gather evidence against Livermore (Al Bridge), who keeps the Mexican revolutionaries in steady supply of guns, but nobody could pin anything on him yet. & to help him on his assignement, Tex takes Stingaree Kelly (Gabby Hayes) with him, a good-natured small fry outlaw who knows just about every other outlaw in the country ...

Meanwhile the Mexican government has decided to send one of their men, Romero (Ted Adams) to De Vina as well, & even on his way there, Romero is picked up by revolutionary general Gomez (Julian Rivero), who accepts him into his ranks - & before long, Gomez & co arrive in De Vina, to pick up a few weapons.

In De Vina, the central meeting point is Livermore's saloon, where he keeps a close watch on his customers from his back room, & plays a waltz on his violin everytime he prepares to shoot somebody - which happens quite regularly so everybody fears Livermore's violin ...

Tex introduces himself to Livermore by saving his life, as a drunk customer tries to kill him, but he also attracts his wrath when he asks Rose (Betty Mack) to dance, the girl whom Livermore is in (unrequitted) love with, but who seems to be quite attracted to the newcomer.

Unwilling to give up Rose, Livermore shows her his infatuation in taking her with him to the border for a bit of gunrunnign action, where her job is to distract the border guards, which she does with aplomb.

However, Tex, who has watched all this from hiding, can't believe she really is in league with Livermore & has a little talk with her, during which he discloses his identity as government agent, & to his surprise, she does the same ... bad thing only that Livermore was eavesdropping on the 2 government agents, & he doesn't like what he hears one bit.

So, while Tex is out saving Romero, who has since been found out as well & sent away with a firing squad, Livermore gives Rose away to Gomez & his men, to do with her what they want (& you know what that might be).

Returning to the saloon, Tex, Stingaree & Romero have their final shoot out with Livermore & his men - & defeat them at the cost of Romero's life. & while Tex leaves Livermore under Stingaree's surveillance, he is off to free Rose. Of course he succeeds, but Livermore has made a last desperate atempt to escape Stingaree & has drawn a hidden pistol, which led the 2 men to shoot each other.

 

An inventive, atypical B-Western, that takes place mostly indoors in a creepy saloon where most of the clients live pretty much in fear of the owner playing his violin, & which seems much too dark & brooding to be enjoyable as a saloon - but all the more atmospheric for the film's sake. The very few - for a Western - out-door scenes are mainly night shots obscuring much of the landscape you would come to expect from a Western, all of which makes this look more than anything else like a creepy crime drama with some old dark house elements thrown in. Worth a look or two.
