After spoiling a bank robbery of bandits who were curiously in cahoots with the bank owner, Doug Redfern (Bob Steele) holds up a barnyard dance to have a dance with Joan (Kathleen Eliott), daughter of Sheriff Blackman (Steve Clark), who is in love with him, too, but is promised by her father to Harvey Meline - same crooked banker who ordered his own bank to be robbed, as a cover-up for quite a sum of money he has embezzled.

& since Doug knows about the crooked dealings about his competitor for Joan's hand, he soon starts collecting evidence against him - but unfortunately, Harvey, too, tries to get rid of his competitor, & he has somehow gotten hold of Doug's bandana, that even holds his monogram. So all he has to do is to have his bank robbed again, & plant the bandana, as well as some other evidence to point into Doug's direction - & the plan works out great, with Doug soon being hunted down, caught & convicted on overwhelming evidence.

But would you know it, Doug is soon free on parole, comes back to town & challenges Harvey to a duel. Of course, Harvey is not prepared to play it straight, so he orders one of his men, the mildly idiotic Lucky (Horace Murphy) to go into Doug's hotel room & shoot him dead ... A shot falls, & Doug exits the hotel, & now Harvey thinks he has the right on his side, since Doug obviously has shot Lucky, & he immediately tries to organize a lynch-mob, even if (or because) that would mean to go over the sheriff's head. But then Lucky emerges from the hotel too ... & he has not been the villain's idiotic  sidekick at all but a government agent collecting evidence against Harvey with Doug's help.

But Harvey of course can escape, & only caught again after being chased down by Doug.

 

A rather average & pointless 30's B-Western, neither boasting the imaginativeness of earlier B's Bob Steele did with his father at Monogram, nor the slickness that later Republic Westerns showed (not essentially to their advantage) or the rather cheap to shabby inventiveness of later Sam Newfield-Westerns over at PRC, sometimes again starring Bob Steele.
