Robert Tansey's Plot No 4 Rides Again
While Frances Kavanaugh received the only on-film writing credit, screenplay, this is yet another remake of Tanseys original story for "Stars Over Arizona (1937)", with Jack Randall, and "Blazing Guns (1943)", starring Ken Maynard and Hoot Gibson. This non-original by Miss Kavanaugh...follow this trail...to get to where this story had been before: Eddie Dean ('Eddie Dean (I)'(qv)) and his friend Ezra ('Emmett Lynn' (qv)), while acting as trail guides for a wagon-train for homesteaders, stop a hold-up attempt by a gang led by Cherokee ('Lash La Rue' (qv)). When the settlers reach their destination, Eddie learns that unscrupulous land-grabbers, led by a saloon-owner and a crooked judge, have killed the sheriff, Eddie's friend, and taken control of all the available land. Eddie is appointed Sheriff and persuades the outlaws, who attempted the holdup, to join him in his fight against the land-grabbers and they will get a pardon from the state governor.
