Cast & Crew
Bob and Don Ramsay, twin sons of a Western cattleman, look alike, but where Bob is kind and good-natured, Don is jealous and bad-tempered. When he is twelve, Bob captures a pair of wild twin colts while riding with his father. Don, who had refused to make the ride, is mad because Bob gives him the pinto colt instead of the black one. A few nights later, Don steals the black colt and runs away from home. Years later, Bob is appointed sheriff of his district while Don, known as the Black Bandit, becomes a cattle rustler. Bob heads up a posse to track down the Black Bandit, unaware he is looking for his twin brother. When he learns the identity of the Black Bandit, however, he hopes to talk Don into "going straight." Don escapes his captors and because of his resemblance to the bandit, Bob is eventually charged with the Don's crimes. Under cover of night, Bob escapes and sets out to capture Don and clear his name in the eyes of the community and his sweetheart, Jane Allen. Bob finds Don when his pinto is attracted by the neighing of its twin, the black horse. In a fistfight, Bob overcomes his brother and exchanges clothes. Meanwhile, Jane has found a picture of Bob and Don as boys in a Bible belonging to Bob's friend, Weepy, and understands what has been happening. Pretending to be the Black Bandit, Bob rounds up the rest of the gang. Don is killed in the ensuing gun battle, but is reconciled with his brother before he dies.
