Brief Synopsis

Producer Trem Carr would remake this film at Lone Star/Monogram in 1935 as "The Dawn Rider" with John Wayne, and again in 1938 at Universal as "Western Trails" with Bob Baker. The local express agent, the father of Tom McGuire (Tom Tyler), is killed during a robbery. 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.

Notes

The Film Daily review describes a scene involving a stagecoach going over a precipice. A Film Daily news item reported that "Betty Gable [sic] has been borrowed from United Artists to head the supporting cast," but her participation in the final film is doubtful. Modern sources include Artie Ortego in the cast.
