Shortly before Pearl Harbour: Because his horses are repeatedly chased off his land by some mysterious trucks, horse rancher Conroy (Steve Clark) calls in the Range Busters (John 'Dusty' King, David Sharpe, Max Terhune) to investigate - and they soon find out that Conroy's Filippino cook Cookie (E. Baucin) is actually a Japanese enemy agent, and the trucks actually deliver Japanese guns and explosives to wherever to cause massive destruction. The Range Busters try to round up the baddies, but Cookie escapes - and it's unclear who's behind the whole thing.

The Range Busters next accompany Conroy's horses to the Philippines, to make sure nothing happens, and as fate has it, once there, they pick up the trail of cookie rather by accident, take apart a restaurant to have him and his cronies arrested, and pick up a trail that leads them back to the USA, and to Conroy's neighbour (Frank Ellis), who turns out to be the head of a spy ring. Of course, our heroes manage to round up all the spies in no time at all and hand them over to the authorities ... then they hear the news about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour and deside to sign up for service in the Armed Forces ...

 

A barely disguised propaganda film, that as a movie flows along pretty smoothly though, and it's some fun to see our Western heroes in unfamiliar settings - even if these settings are reduced to mostly stock footage for budgetary reasons. That all said, at the same time this is also a movie you will have forgotten soon after watching, as it hardly sticks out of the flood of B-Westerns produced in the 1940's. That said, there are way worse (also in the Range Busters series).
