Together with his boxcar acquaintance Rusty (Don Barclay), Bob (Bob
Steele) travels to some desert town to claim his inheritance, his uncle's
ranch. But since his uncle was killed by a gang of outlaws trying to take
over his ranch, he doesn't take possession of the ranch immediately but
pretends to side with the outlaws, led by Reno (Ed Brady), while Rusty
poses as Bob in front of the ranch's foreman Andrews (Steve Clarke), his
daughter Betty (Louise Stanley), and their neighbour Curt (Charles King),
who unbeknowest to everyone is really the man who hired Reno and his gang
to get hold of Bob's ranch.
Soon enough, Bob is told to shoot Rusty,
whom the outlaws of course believe to be Bob, and when he tries to hide
his friend, he somehow gets into conflict with both the law and his outlaw
accomplices - but somehow he manages to round up all the baddies in the
end, duke it out with Curt, and of course get the girl.
B-Western that could have done with a few more action setpieces and a more
careful biuld-up of its whodunnit aspects - unfortunately it's way too
obvious that Charles King is behind it all from square one (because let's
face it, isn't Charles King always the baddie ?). On the plus side, Don
Barclay makes an interesting and unusual sidekick that comes off as pretty
amusing in his own way without being moronic.
