Bob Steele, Bad Man
Bob Steele is in prison. He breaks out and falls in with Forrest Taylor. They had pulled a big score a year ago, but the money is missing, and they're looking for another score. Fortunately, they have an in: Charles French is the local sheriff and his son, Frank Lyman Jr., is one of their number.
Bob Steele as a bad man? Oh, no! It must have been tough for the audience to accept their clean-cut young hero, in the midst of this mare's nest of conflicting loyalties -- French has a pretty daughter, Beth Marion, and Bob and she get on like a house on fire, but he also seems pretty familiar with Nancy Deshon, the bar maid at the local watering hole who seems to be familiar with the bad guys. To add to the confusion, the Bradbury-Steele unit regular, Lloyd Ingraham, is credited as "Floyd Ingraham."
It's a pretty good story, and for those ladies in the audience looking for some beefcake, Bob strips down to trunks for a wrestling match.
