| Save The Ranch Meets The Good Bad Man
Horse thief Richard Alexander and his gang save Rex Lease from an undeserved lynching. Lease declines their offer to join them, heads across state lines and helps Adabelle Driver and her son, Bobby Nelson save the ranch. He also earns the ire of evil bar owner Alphonse Martell and the love of Bea Mehaffey.

It's a save-the-ranch plot, #2 on Frank Gruber's list of the seven western plots. However, it is nicely tricked out with Good Bad Men, and an exciting finish (I would write 'thrilling' except we go in knowing things will turn out well), that this old chestnut is very watchable. Director Albert Herman can't raise much of a performance out of anyone, but I actually take some pleasure in the realistic clumsiness when stunts are performed. If you're a fan of old B westerns, you'll find it a very pleasant hour.
