Deputy U.S. Marshall Johnny Mack Brown kills a friend in the line of duty and hands in his badge. He's no killer, and he's off to the Oklahoma Land Rush. There he meets old friend Bob Baker and Baker's sister Anne Gwynne. He used to work for their father down in Texas. Now they've lost their ranch and intend to start over with the best claim in the Indian Territories. Brown knows the best route there.

James Blaine wants that piece of land too, so he steals Brown's map, kills Baker and frames Brown. Can comic sidekick Fuzzy Knight get him out before he's hanged?

Ford Beebe directs from his own script, and it's a spotty vehicle, with some erratic pacing. Neither does Knight get to do any good routines, although Brown plays the spoons with the Texas Rangers -- apparently his time at the University of Alabama wasn't entirely wasted when he wasn't playing football. The Land Rush looks to be made up mostly from library clips, but they're edited together very well, and cinematographer Jeome Ash's work is best in the establishing shots, workmanlike afterwards.
