Lucky Larrigan (1932) as Story and adpt
Typical of the Trem Carr-produced Monogram westerns starring Rex Bell, this one opens in the East with Craig Larrigan (Rex Bell)as a polo-playing playboy who has no use for the West nor the western way of life. Rancher Jess Bailey (John Elliott), accompanied by his daughter Virginia (Helen Foster), comes east to get his eastern-business partner John Larrigan (Wilfred Lucas, who despite the usually incorrect source that thinks so, did not direct this film)to advance him more money to keep their rustler-plagued ranch afloat, and Craig and Virginia strike up a romance, which is going nowhere fast because of his elitist attitude. The contrived motivation to get the Bell character out west makes less sense than usual, and the incidents that follow carry no logic either.

In the chase that follows Tom is wounded and taken by his friend, Sandy Thompson (Al Bridge as Alan Bridge), to the home of Janice Warren (Betty Mack) to recover. Janice and Tom soon fall in love, and that brings complications as Sandy is also in love with Janice, and Tom believes that her brother Cliff (Gordon DeMain as G. D. Woods), is one of the gang members that robbed the express office. Cliff challenges Tom to a shoot-out in the street. Tom accepts, not knowing that his guns have been emptied by the jealous Sandy. The latter, in a change of heart, steps into the duel and shoots Cliff just before he is shot down from ambush by saloon owner Willis (Stanley Blystone), the secret leader of the gang. Willis is captured by Tom and Tom takes Sandy to the doctor (Si Jenks.) Cliff confesses before dying to his role in the robbery, and Tom and Janice are reconciled.
