Synopsis

Shortly after Lucky Carson witnesses the accidental death of Jim Thornton, who was desperately trying to escape a gang of killers led by Jim's enemy Bat, Lucky meets Jim's niece Ann Thornton, who is traveling with medicine-showman Doc Haliday and musician Tony. Lucky joins Doc's act as a sharpshooter and while entertaining in a nearby town is recognized by one of Bat's men and accused of Jim's murder. The town's drunken lawyer defends Lucky, and he is acquitted. The sheriff and Ann ride to the mine and discover Jim's diary, which reveals that a new pocket of gold exists, and that Bat, attempting to take over the mine, held Jim prisoner. Lucky is nearly killed by Bat's men, who send him down a steep hill in a mining car, but he survives the ride to defeat the gang in a chase on horseback. Finally, Doc and Tony believe that they have invented a new way to pan gold by using the Doc's elixir only to learn that Lucky had hidden Jim's ore in their brew.
