| Two Households, Both Alike In Dignity
Karl Hackett wants all the local water rights. His plan means that the farmers on the Mesa will have to be cleared out, so he shoots one of them in the back, spreading word among his survivors that it was a cattleman, and does the same to rancher Frank Ball, convincing the riders it was a farmer. In the midst of this, Bob Steele, Ball's son, marries Louise Stanley, sister of the dead farmer. No one wants either of them. It's up to Steele to figure out what's going on and stop the war that's already hit the shooting stage in this randomly named B Western.

It's a good, if standard plot for westerns, and Steele, as always, looks good getting on or off a horse or beating up Hackett. Even his most fervent admirers will admit that his voice is not great, but that's not what people see westerns for. Miss Stanley is pretty, and Ernie Adams, who was in more than 450 movies, actually gets some lines and character. It's another pleasant B western.
