The title card reads "Wrangler's Roost Another Adventure with the Range Busters." Opening credits also note that the film was "Photographed on the Ray Corrigan Ranch," which is located in Simi Valley, CA. The film opens with the following written foreword: "In the annals of Western outlaws, there was no more colorful, more elusive figure than Black Bart, who committed all his robberies with an unloaded rifle. With scores of stagecoach robberies to his credit, he successfully baffled a frantic express company by keeping his identity unknown, until a carelessly dropped handkerchief with a laundry mark led to his capture. Then, after a long term in prison he was paroled. He then disappeared and how he eventually finished his days is a mystery." Black Bart was the name used by outlaw Charles E. Bolton. For additional information on the outlaw, see entry above for the 1948 Universal film Black Bart.
