Spike Manning (Bob Steele), who has in jail befriended Muggs (Richard Cramer) and his gang, makes a daring break-out to in some mountain hide-out meet up with Muggs' pals Blake (Forrest Taylor) - the typical honest citizen gangmember - and Hashknife (Charles King). For some reason though, before coming eye to eye with them he spies on them and finds out they have blackmailed the Sheriff's son Kent (Frank Lyman jr) into helping them ... and he learns that they are planning to steal a payroll, so Spike steals it before they can and even makes sure that Hashknife is arrested for the crime.

Then Spike takes a job as the new foreman at the Sheriff's (Charles K.French) farm and at the same time hooks up with Blake ... and he breaks Hashknife free from prison.

The next few weeks, nothing much happens, and Spike gets very friendly with the Sheriff's daughter Judy (Beth Marion) ... which only goes wrong when he is visited by a local dancing girl (Nancy Deshon) who has news about Muggs and his gang being released, and inevitably Judy learns Spike isn't the upright citizen she thought him to be but a crook ... which eventually leads to Spike's arrest, and to Blake shooting him, because he hasn't only stolen the payroll at the beginning of the film but also some loot Muggs has promised his gang long ago. But of course, Blake didn't shoot him for real, Spike had taken all of this into account and arranged his getaway. This is pretty much the point where Spike turns out to be not a crook at all but an undercover G-Man, and in the end, he saves the day with the help of the Texas Rangers and also gives Kent, the Sheriff's son, an opportunity to redeem himself. And of course, finally Spike also gets the girl, Judy, while the dancing girl turns out to be another gouvernment agent.

 

Fast moving and full of unusual plottwists and plot elements - the most interesting maybe a quite exciting and rough wrestling bout - as well as action aplenty, this is pretty much typical Robert N.Bradbury-fare, a much underrated B-Western auteur who always knew how to exceed genre limitations and make the most of his often meager budgets.

Recommended.
