Milburn Morante owns an old Spanish land grant. He and his family are wiped out, except for his young son. Roger Williams steals the deed and claims the land. Twenty years later, the boy is grown into Fred Kohler Jr. (in a rare leading role), who begins his process of vengeance and recovery of his property by robbing the thieves.

It's directed by Harry L. Fraser and shows the strength and weaknesses of his movies. The story is good, if a little shopworn, and the visuals are fine. There's one knockout moving shot into a party, and while there's plenty of horseback riding, it is cut tight enough that is never gets annoying.

On the other hand, the dialogue direction is awful. Far too many of the less experienced actors speak their lines as if they have no emotional weight and there's one point at which Kohler, speaking to Ed Cassidy, forgets the character's name. Given that this was a B western distributed through states rights, its budget was undoubtedly so small that Fraser and producer William Berke felt retakes weren't necessary.
