After a 10 year absence, Roy returns to his hometown. But, some people treat him like an enemy, mistaking him for local badman Bill Sloan, who seems to be mixed up in a scheme to defraud a number of ranchers out of their property. Against the advice of his partner Gabby Hayes, he decides to try masquerading as Sloan, who doesn't actually show up until near the end, when he is easily distinguished from Roy by his shiner. Thus, Roy hopes to increase his chances of bringing the criminals to justice by impersonating Sloan. Unfortunately, the habitually polite Roy just doesn't come across as a real, crude, badman, and some people begin doubting if he is Sloan......... The kingpin of this theft scheme is lawyer Ramsay McCall. He instructs the 3 deputies what to do. Probably, he had the sheriff eliminated, so that his crooked deputies would have a free hand in enforcing what McCall wanted. He also has a hold over the local Judge(Kirby), relating to the embezzlement of county money by his brother, which he claimed he paid back, but the receipt for this is missing. .......One humorous event occurred when Roy first meets Sloan's girlfriend, Julie(Beryl Wallace). She rushes up to him and gives him a big kiss and hug. Meanwhile, observer Ann Kirby(Lynne Carver) shows her displeasure with him. Anne has a possible interest in Roy, but he doesn't let his true identity show through yet. Julie comes across as brassy: perfect for Slone, while Ann seems a goody two shoes: perfect for Roy. A bit more humor is provided as a social, where Roy shows up as Sloan. Ann and Julie are also there. Julie gets jealous of Roy's attention to Ann. Roy goes to the booth that says '$1.O0 per kiss' . Roy puts down $4.00, but the girl he hopes will kiss him runs off, saying her time in over. Thus, Roy is left with her plain-looking partner. Roy says 'forget it", and leaves: not very gentlemanly. But, then, he's supposed to be Sloan. Then, Roy takes part in a pie raffle. The high bidder for each pie, gets to dance with the pie maker, as well as take the pie home. Roy bid $10.00, an outrageous amount, on the pie that happens to have been made by Ann. She's not amused, assuming him to be Sloan........I've left out most of the nitty gritty about how McCall and buddies are corralled by the honest people, and there is peace in the valley once more.........See it at YouTube.
