Cast & Crew
Curley and Belle, a middle-aged bandit couple, are interrupted during an argument by word of a cattle drive coming up from Texas. The drive's foreman, Breezy Larkin, is captured by the bandits, but he refuses to join in Curley's plan to rustle the cattle. While Curley and his men sleep, Breezy's dog, Tuffy, helps him escape. Breezy then joins a group of cattlemen on a massive drive up the Chisholm Trail. One evening as Breezy and some of the men entertain themselves by playing music, Tuffy spots Curley's spies and alerts Breezy, who captures one of them, Jake. The other men get away and warn Curley that there are a lot of cowhands with Breezy, but Curley decides to rustle the cattle regardless. In Gaysburg, Curley makes a deal with Sam Hardan to sell the stolen stock at a discounted price. Curley's gunmen start a stampede of Breezy's cattle in the Hidden Valley, which crashes through Gaysburg, destroying everything in its path. Meanwhile, Curley fights with Sam, and takes back his money, but Breezy captures him, while Tuffy saves the carriage with the money. As the other rustlers are rounded up along with the cattle, Breezy and his girlfriend Alice set a wedding date: April 1.
