The first of a series of six westerns produced by Ron Ormond for Lippert distribution starring two ex-Hopalong Cassidy sidekicks, which means it also is the first one in the series that was a direct swipe from one of A.

The first of a long-running series of Monogram-produced westerns starring Johnny Mack Brown and Raymond Hatton that replaced the Rough Riders series following the death of Buck Jones in the Boston night club fire. Though the next three years featured Brown (as Nevada Jack McKenzie) and Hatton (in his Sandy Hopkins role from the Rough Riders series) as undercover marshals in some form or another, this initial entry had Brown as a lone rider seeking vengeance and he and Hatton's characters were unknown to each other through most of the film. Hopkins offer McKenzie a marshal's job at the end of the film, which the Brown character declined and rode off alone on his quest. This quest didn't take long as by the next film in the series Nevada Jack McKenzie was a full-fledged U. S. Marshal.
Nevada Jack McKenzie (Johnny Mack Brown) rides into the town of Blackwell, to discover that Sheriff Ben (Roy Barcroft) and town banker Ward (Sam Flint) head up a gang of thieves.

Nevada frees Tom and hides him out in the cafe run by Clem Martin (Steve Clark), father of Tom's sweetheart, Ruth (Christine McIntyre). Sandy is working undercover as a saloon swamper, and learns many plans of the gang.

In the 8th (and last) entry in the Scott R. Dunlap-produced "Rough Riders" series for Monogram, the town of Gold Creek is in turmoil due to the hi-jacking of gold. Newspaper editor Rufus Tood (Milburn Morante) is going to publish the fact that a dying miner accused Rand (Harry Woods) and Ludlow (Roy Barcroft) of being his attackers. John Corbett (Jack Daley), the town's leading citizen and Todd's supposed friend, but in reality the man behind the gang, has Todd's presses wrecked. The latter sends for U.S. Marshal Buck Roberts (Buck Jones, in his next to last film), who stops a holdup of miner Ray Mason (Bud McTaggart), carrying gold in a wagon, and brings the wounded Ray to town and secretes the wagon. Marshals Tim McCall (Tim McCoy, in his last series western), posing as a preacher, and Sandy Hopkins (Raymond Hatton), posing as an undertaker, have also arrived in town. The coffins Sandy brings contain a new printing press for Todd. With the aid of his daughter Julie (Evelyn Cook), Todd puts out an edition naming Rand and Ludlow as crooks and demanding the name of the man behind the crimes. The crooks identify Buck as the man who took the gold wagon from them, and Buck, posing as an outlaw, makes a deal with them to deliver the gold to the ring leader. They have other plans, however.
Scully has forced Joe Collins who works on the Garcia ranch to give him information so his men can steal the family jewels. But the Rough Riders are on the job. Buck poses as a wanted outlaw to get into the gang, Tim as a cattle buyer, and Sandy is collecting information as the saloon janitor. As usual they pretend not to know each other.
In this entry of Monogram's "Rough Riders" series (no relationship to the dull TV series of the 50's), Ma Turner (Sarah Padden) of Red Bluff sends for U.S.Marshal Buck Roberts (Buck Jones) to investigate a series of wide-spread rustling in the area. Town banker Miller (Walter McGrail), saloon-owner Duke Mason (Harry Woods) and the crooked sheriff (Lee Phelps) are in cahoots with rancher John Holt, but they double-cross and kill him. His son Steve (Dennis Moore) witnesses the murder and kills the sheriff. Buck arrives and arrests Steve. Marshal Tim McCall (Tim McCoy), posing as an outlaw, gains the confidence of the gang and engineers the escape, with Buck's knowledge, of Steve from the jail. Sandy Hopkins (Raymond Hatton), the third Marshal of the trio, poses as a peddler and learns that the gang intends to do away with Buck and rides to the Turner ranch to warn him. Red (Bud Osborne), a Turner ranch hand but also a member of the gang, overhears Buck telling Ma that Tim is really a U.S. Marshal, and he has Miller and Mason informed.

Montana Bill Bell (Kermit Maynard), a friend of the Three Mesquiteers, Stony Brooke (Robert Livingston), Rusty Joslin (Raymond Hatton) and Rico Renaldo (Duncan Renaldo), is killed in a rodeo accident and the trio reluctantly places his young daughter Peggy (Patsy Lee Parsons) in an orphanage while they earn enough money to qualify for her adoptation. Visiting the orphanage, they discover that Peggy's foot has been injured in an accident. The superintendent, Melloney (Byron Foulger), silences Peggy when she attempts to tell them about it. Despite their suspicions they agree to raise the $400 needed for special treatment required for Peggy's injury. To raise the money, Stony boxes four rounds in an exhibition with "Killer" McCully (Jack Roper) and succeeds in knocking him out. Taking the money to the orphanage, the Mesquiteers are impressed when they find that Melloney has stretched his budget and purchased the equipment already. They are unaware that Melloney and associate J. D. Crone (William Ruhl) did so to keep attention from being focused on the home, as they are exploiting the kids and taking funds alloted to running the orphanage. When Stony sees a small boy being bullied by an attendant, he hears enough to convince him that a child-labor sweatshop is being run in the basement. In the garb of a "Masked Rider", and with the aid of Rusty, Rico and nurse Ruth Miller (Loretta Weaver), the job of rescuing the children and convicting the crooks begins.
This entry in Republic's "Three Mesquiteers" series has a misnomer for a title since the action takes place in Texas and pre-statehood Oklahoma, and the Rocky Mountains are in neither state, but Republic, which easily produced the best of the B-westerns, quite often used a title that had nothing to do with the locale of the film. Stony Brooke (Robert Livingston), Rusty Joslin (Raymond Hatton) and Rico (Duncan Renaldo) are Texas Rangers unable to enter the territory known as the Panhandle as it is not part of the state, and lawlessness runs rampant there, under the guerilla leader, King Barton (LeRoy Mason.) They discover a young boy, Danny Burke (Sammy McKim), wounded and left to die by the Barton gang. They nurse him back to health, but he is killed in another raid by the Barton outfit. Stony takes possession of the boy's gun and vows vengeance. Since the strip of land hiding the outlaws is under Federal authority, the Mesquiteers enter the territory with a plan to lure the outlaws across the Texas border. Stony, posing as his look-alike outlaw double known as The Laredo Kid, stages a jail break to free King Barton's younger brother Jim (Dennis Moore) from a Texas jail and insinuates himself into the gang. Barton has been forcing a Panhandle gunsmith named Manners (John St. Polis) to provide weapons for him, and Manners' daughter, Doris (Rosella Towne), is antagonistic toward Stony, whom she believes to be The Laredo Kid. Stony soon convinces her of his true identity. The plot to lure the Barton gang into Texas is progressing nicely until the real Laredo Kid shows up and exposes Stony.
