At a hold-up, Jim's (Tom Keene) father is shot by bandit Red Gentry (Charles King), who then, to escape the law, makes off to Canada with his gang, but not before robbing his girlfriend, violinist Roxey (Bety Compson) of all her money.

Without an idea of whom he is looking for, Jim sets after Red, but soon enough, crossing the desert, he meets Roxey, who wants to leave her old life behind, and who promises to help him find Red, as she wants her revenge on him too.

While crossing the desert, Roxey accidently stumbles over a goldmine which she splits threeways with Jim & Sandy (Billy Bletcher), the blacksmith who actually found the gold in her horse's shoe. The 3 of them become comfortably rich, Starbuck, the town they are living in, becomes a booming town, & Jim takes a liking into Betty (Charlotte Henry), Sandy's daughter, & Roxey is not too happy about it.

Soon, Roxey sells her shares in the mine & withthe money opens a dance hall in Starbuck, on one hand to follow her true vocation, violin playing, on the other to lure Red Gentry here - above all for Jim's sake, who doesn't really seem to notice though.

Before long Red arrives, & wants a cut of Roxey's wealth ... & it's exactly then when Roxey, by some coincidence rather than anything else, can't find Jim, who of course doesn't even know what Red looks like (at one point he even bumps into him without recognizing).

It's only when Red wants to clear Roxey's safe but she calls for help that Roxey can finally get hold of Jim ... but by then, Red shoots her & makes a getaway. Roxey lives only long enough to tell Jim that Red is the man who shot his father.

Jim, aided by the local mounies, tracks down Red & his gang, & aftera massive shootout naturally good triumphs over evil. Jim himself gets into a fight with Red, & in the end Red falls off some cliffs to his death.

& in the end, Jim & Betty marry.

 

As was often the case, director Robert N.Bradbury has added some elements to this film not usually found B Westerns, like a woman devicing a complex plot to get her revenge on the man who wronged her, which is also a disguised declaration of love to the hero, who doesn't fall for her though but a comparetively pale country gal. Plus the heroine dies before the finale ...

All this, combined with beautiful photography & plenty of action (though some of it was lifted from earlier Monogram films) results in an hour of good entertainment.
