Cast & Crew
Sheriff Ken assures Turner that his $30,000 will be safe in the strongbox in his twin brother Clem's general store. Unknown to Ken, the meek and misunderstood Clem has agreed to give the combination of the safe to the outlaw Rawhide, who has promised to split the money with him. Rawhide sends Ken and a posse on a wild goose chase to divert their attention while he robs and ties up Clem, then tells him that he can get his share at their hideout. Ken discovers the ruse and returns to town just as Rawhide and his gang are emerging from the store. The gang retreats under gunfire and, after setting fire to the store, escapes by breaking through the floorboards. Clem is implicated in the robbery when the combination to the safe is found in his handwriting, and he tells Turner that he was coerced. Turner is content when Ken promises to start hunting for the outlaws first thing in the morning, but town citizen Boots protests Ken's inaction, imprisons him and is appointed sheriff by his drinking buddies. Clem escapes town with Ken's clever horse, Tarzan, and tries to convince Ken's girl friend, Mary Turner, to run away with him. Mary refuses, but when Clem tells her that Ken is injured and needs her help, she goes along willingly. Mary does not realize she was tricked until Clem takes her to the outlaw hideout, which is situated inside a group of caves, where Clem is disappointed when Rawhide offers him only five hundred dollars as his share of the stolen money. Rawhide traps Clem and Mary so that they will not be able to reveal the location of the hideout, and realizing they are in trouble, Clem hides a note on Tarzan, who then finds his way back to town alone. Ken escapes his "jail" in the backroom of the saloon by trapping a vaudevillian, Charlie, in his trunk and donning a disguise. At first, Ken successfully tricks everyone into thinking that he is Charlie when he performs, but when a drunk pulls off his disguise, Ken escapes after getting back his guns. Tarzan meets him in time to carry him out of town to the hideout, where Mary is stalling while Rawhide is trying to force himself on her, after having shot Clem, who tried to stop him. After a struggle, Ken knocks out Rawhide and escapes with Mary to the outside, where he has to fend off the entire gang with his two pistols. Clem revives and saves Ken's life, then sacrifices his own by telling his brother and Mary to return to town. He then ignites the dynamite that Rawhide had stored in a cave, killing himself and destroying the hideout for good. Ken proudly returns the money to Turner, noting that his brother finally found his honor. When Turner offers his daughter a horse, Ken informs him that he and Mary will be riding double from now on.
