Pals of the Silver Sage
Cast & Crew
Tex Wright and his sidekick Cactus ride to the aid of little Sugar who, because of the death of her parents, is in danger of losing her ranch unless she can make the deadline for a cattle delivery. Hired on as ranch hands, Tex and Cactus soon discover that Sugar's foreman Jeff, who is also her cousin, is working with rancher Vic Insley to rustle the little girl's cattle, thus forcing her to sell the ranch. Tex formulates a plot to flush the rustlers out into the open by posing as a rustler himself. After rebranding the stolen cattle, Tex offers the rustlers a split if they will help him sell the herd. Insley and Jeff turn Tex into the sheriff, but he eludes the sheriff's posse and rides to round up Jeff and Insley. After Tex captures the rustlers, Coleman, the town banker, exonerates Tex by explaining that he sent for the cowboy, who is the brother of Sugar's late mother, when the banker became suspicious of Jeff's actions.
