Ed Cole (Charles King), respected saloon owner, heads the vigilante
committe of a small Texas town ... but at the same time he's also head of
a gang of outlaws who repeatedly (and successfully) raid the bank of same
town. And one time, during another raid, he helps his outlaws escape when
he personally shoots the local Sheriff (Kermit Maynard). However, the
Sheriff was the best friend of the Range Busters - Dusty King, David
Sharp, Max Terhune - who are soon on their way too town ... only to be
driven away by Cole and his vigilantes - which makes them more than a tad
Soon the Range Busters put up camp at local rancher Rand's (Forrest
Taylor) place, from where they continue investigating (plus King and
Sharpe naturally fall in love with the same woman, Rand's daughter Mary
After a bit of snooping around, the Range Busters get a pretty good
idea what's going on, and in the end, with the help of the local bank
owner and a few other honourable citizens, they set up a trap that Cole
and his outlaws step right into - but in the end it's thanks to Rand's
outlaw adoptive son Jeff (Lynton Brent), who has found back to the path of
righteousness just in time that the Range Busters aren't shot.
Of course, in the end Cole and company get their just desserts while
neither King nor Sharpe get the girl ...
Another rather weak entry into the Range Busters series
that seriously lacks inventive action scenes and original plot ideas to
really shine. Instead the film is filled up with a bit of sloppily
executed and moderately successful attempts at comedy that do nothing but
slow down the on-screen proceedings.
Rather dull, actually.
