Johnny Mack Brown and Raymond Hatton ride the trail again in yet another assignment to stop a Frontier Feud. A feud that is being instigated by a third party and it's the usual western villain in these films who is interested in acquiring the two spreads from the feuding parties.

I've seen a few of these and they all fit the same pattern. I guess that saves the economy minded Sam Katzman on writers.
Nothing exceptional about this one. It could use some restoration.
