Cast & Crew
George F. Hayes
Swifty Wade, a lone rider in search of a job in Sweetwater country, comes upon Alec McNeil, owner of one of the largest ranches in the district, moments before he is slain in an ambush. Three men, McNeil's adopted son Price, the foreman of the McNeil ranch, Sandy McGregor, and ranchhand "Clam" Givens, come upon the scene and accuse Swifty of murder. With the help of the elderly sheriff, Dan Hughes, who was McNeil's best friend, Swifty escapes a lynching. Dan is suspicious of Price, who has been involved in shady deals with Cheevers, an attorney. When Swifty goes to the McNeil ranch to clear himself with McNeil's daughter Helen, he finds Price and Cheevers trying to convince Helen to hand over her father's will to them. Warning Helen, Swifty grabs the will and is chased by Price and Cheevers, but escapes. Although Price convinces the men of the town to lock up Dan, Swifty releases him and later places the culprits, including Price and Cheevers, in a cell. While Clam captures Helen and ties up Sandy at the ranch, Price lassoes his gun from a desk, shoots the cell lock, and escapes. Meanwhile, Swifty and Dan trace the tracks of the killer, who wore boots similar to Swifty's, to Hidden Valley. They arrive just as a cowboy named Squid, hired by Price to kill McNeil, demands payment for the job from Price. A fight ensues and Dan and his posse take the culprits back to jail. Helen and Swifty then discover that they have fallen in love.
