Drifting into Rainbow Valley, John Martin (John Wayne) saves George Hale (Gabby Hayes), who drives the mail car, from an attack by outlaws, and later he fights it out with a guy whom he thinks was part of the attack, even though honourable citizen Rogers (LeRoy Mason) vouches for him. However, his fighting skills get Martin a foreman job with the local road construction company, which is under attack by the same outlaws who tried to hold up george. Thing is, there is no law in Rainbow Valley, and the outlaws want to get their hands on the rich mines of the region - but if a road was built too soon, the law could come in force - and to no one's real surprise, Rogers actually is the leader of the outlaws ...

Martin soon organizes the roadworkers in a way that they are able to defend themselves against the outlaws and also saves George from the outlaws once more, but Rogers has a quite different plan: One one hand he manages to steal all the dynamite from the construction site and the local miners (which brings construction to a grinding halt), on the other, he substitutes a petition for army interference with a petition for the release of his accomplice Butch (Jay Wilsey) - who is actually released too, and who turns out to be former cellmates with Martin.

Faced with Butch, Martin changes sides and makes up a plan to destroy all progress the roadwork has made so far by way of explosion ... and attracts the attention of the local lynchmob. But of course, Martin is not really an outlaw, he only outsmarted Butch, Rogers and their henchmen and saw to it that the explosion would not only benefit the new road after all but also kill most of the outlaws, while he brings the survivors to justice, because to no one's real surprise he turns out to be a gouvernment undercover agent in the end.

Lucile Browne plays John wayne's love interest, and of course the two get together in the end.

 


Robert N.Bradbury's Westerns often featured unusual themes, and this one, focussing on road construction and featuring Gabby Hayes' car quite prominently in several scenes, is no exception. Still, the film is one of the weaker movies Bradbury did with Wayne for Monogram, lacking the virtual excesses of other films from the series. Still, it's a fine and entertaining B-Western that still compares favourably to many similar films of its time.
