A masked outlaw known as Carson City Kid roams the countryside, but when shady Sonora casino owner Jessup (Bob Steele) organizes a posse to get hold of him, they only capture Laramie (Francis McDonald), his accomplice.

The real Carson City Kid is of course Roy Rogers, who soon thereafter enters Sonora himself, & manages to impress Jessup with his shooting,so he gets a job as casino-guard in no time. & he also catches the eye of beautiful casino singer Joby (Pauline Moore), a girl Jessup also has his claims on.

One day though Scott (Noah Beery jr), a young & naive golddigger who has come to riches drifts through town, & when Jessup spots Scott's moneybeld, he proposes a cardgame - & of course cheats Scott out of everything he's got. & when Scott starts a commotion it's tonly thanks to Roy that he doesn't catch a bullet ...

When the next day Scott awakes in Roy's room he's mighty grateful, & in turn Roy tells him why eh did it ... there was a gambler once who cheated his brother out of all his money, & when he started a commotion, he killed him. Since that day, Roy is trailing that gambler, & he has a pretty good idea it might be Jessup.

Local Sheriff Gabby (Gabby Hayes), hearing that story through the door & realizing what a good man Roy is, immediately deputizes him.

Back at the casino, Jessup tries to force his love on Joby, when Roy steps in to gallantly save the dame ... upon which Jessup fires them both. To celebrate being free of Jessup, the 2 of them visit the local Chinese restaurant to have a romantic dinner ... when the Carson City Kid robs Jesup's casino ... of course it's not the real kid but Scott, who wants to get back the money he was cheated out of. When being chased by Jessup's posse, he manages to hide away the money, but is captured nevertheless, & identified as the Kid by Laramie (who would identifie just about everyone as the Kid in order to be set free).

Jessup's idea to immediately organize a necktie party is only spoiled by sheriff Gabby, who insists on a fair trial ... where finally Roy shows up as the real Carsion City Kid, & he forces Jessup to confess to having killed his brother before shooting him in self defense.

Then, as Carson City Kid, he makes his last getaway - but as Roy he returns, to hook up with Joby.

 

One of the better Republic/Roy Rogers b-Westerns of the 40's as this one proves to be less slick & standardized than other comparable films, Roy's musical number (only one in this film) is integrated into the plot instead of interrupting it, & Bob Steele - a b-western hero in his own right, makes a nice villain here.
