In jail, small fry crook Tracks Williams (Raymond Hatton) meets Lonesome Alonzo (Johnny Downs), a young man booked for eloping with lovely Lenta (Betty Jane Rhodes), and their wedding was stopped only in the nick of time by Lenta's sister Harriett (Marsha Hunt), who owns and runs the biggest horse ranch in the area, and her lawyer Monroe Adams (Grant Withers). Tracks is really moved by the young man's story, so when they're broken free by Tracks' partner Laramie (Buster Crabbe), an even smaller fry crook with a heart of gold, they decide to help Lonesome. So Laramie and Tracks ride into the ranch, and before you know it, Harriett has hired them as ranchhands, and has taken a liking in Laramie as well. Laramie soon figures out though that something is entirely wrong here, and that Adams actually wants to cheat Harriett out of a huge herd of horses. Of course, Harriett doesn't believe him at first, but Adams is quick to realize that Laramie and Tracks might pose a threat, and he tries everything to get them killed. But somehow Laramie manages to keep himself and Tracks alive, keep Harriett's herd from being stolen, convince Harriett that Adams is a crook, get Lonesome and Lenta together again ... and in the end, he of course gets a girl (Harriett) of his own.


Basically a pretty middle-of-the-road B-western with plenty of action and romance to keep one interested but predictable enough to not have one too excited. However, Buster Crabbe makes one of the better B-western heroes, and Raymond Hatton turns in a rather unusual yet highly entertaining turn as Crabbe's sidekick. Plus, Johnny Downs is rather entertaining as the romantic lead.

Basically, if you don't expect an eye-opener or a genre-changing movie but something a tad run-of-the-mill, chances are you'll find this enjoyable.
