This is a pretty unusual Roy Rogers western. Although as sheriff, Gabby Hayes is often involved with trying to catch or help Roy, unlike most such westerns, he is not officially Roy's sidekick. Nonetheless, he is full of fallacious claims about his past, as usual. The stage coach holdups by the Carson City Kid(CCK) are unique in that the only thing he wants is to examine the mail for the receiver's name and address. Evidently, he's done this quite a few times, but we only see him do this once, because he finally found what he was looking for: the address of Morgan Reynolds, given as Sonora, in the foothills of the Sierras. He's looking for retribution for the shooting death of his brother in a disputed card game. During his stage holdup, he wore a bandana over the lower part of his face, and spoke in Spanish, mainly. In recent times, he has been riding with the notorious outlaw Laramie(Francis McDonald). We might wonder why, since their personalities are quite different and they often don't get along. When they stop at the cabin of young miner Arizona Warren, the latter boasts his gold finds: a bad idea with Laramie around. Laramie suggests that they take his gold, but the unmasked Roy nixes that idea. Nonetheless, Laramie soon sticks his gun in Arizona's back, and a fight ensues. Arizona knocks him out. Roy revives him, gets him on his horse as they ride away, soon being chased by a posse led by Gabby......... Laramie's horse is shot, and stumbles, dumping him. Roy returns and puts him on Trigger, along with himself. After a while, Laramie conks Roy on the head and pushes him off Trigger, presumably so Trigger could gallop faster. Nonetheless, the posse catches him, somehow? missing Roy on the way. The stage driver says that Trigger is the CCK's horse, thus, presumably, he his the CCK. He claims it was the other fellow they missed. The sheriff is undecided, thus orders him taken to jail until the question of who is the CCK is resolved more definitively. A bargain is struck that if Laramie can convincingly identify the CCK, he will be freed. ......Meanwhile, the gold miner Arizona can't keep his mouth shut about his gold strike when he enters the saloon owned by Lee Jessup. Jessup's singer, Joby, warns him not to play cards with Jessup, but he doesn't listen, saying he's always been lucky at cards. Well, it's not long before Jessup has relieved him of all his gold. Arizona claims foul play and tries to make a scene. Jessup has him thrown out.......Jessup has posted a $10,000. reward for the capture or death of the CCK. The people might wonder why, since the CCK hadn't stolen anything of his, nor killed any of his henchmen. Jessup had been informed that the CCK found one of the letters to Morgan Reynolds of interest. This upset Jessup, as, in Nevada, he was known by that name. In short, he feared that the CCK was out to assassinate him.........Now, Arizona puts a bandana over his face, speaks Spanish, and claims he is the CCK. He enters Jessup's office, and finds the gold that Jessup won from him, plus some letters, then hightails it out of town. A posse catches him, but he now denies being the CCK. He is taken to see Laramie, in jail. In a lineup, Laramie fortuitously picks him out, as the CCK, hoping he will now be let out of jail. Jessup wants to string him up right away, but Gabby insists on a formal trial. Laramie again insists that Arizona is the CCK. However, Roy appears, with his bandana over his face, and speaking Spanish initially. He brings some letters(the same that Arizona stole?) addressed to Morgan Reynolds, that he says were obtained from Jessup's desk. Jessup pulls his gun, but CCK pulls his gun faster and kills Jessup, while Jessup's misguided shot happens to hit Gabby, who then claims he's dying. But when Arizona shows him the bottle of snake oil that Gabby claims he got from Sitting Bull, he perks up and is soon on his feet! Meanwhile, the CCK disappears out the door.......In the finale, Roy and Joby are married, even though she deduced that he was the CCK. .......See it at YouTube.
