Jim Gray is a decent, courageous, and law-abiding citizen. When he is framed for the murder of his friend, Neil Denham, he escapes to conduct his own desperate investigation. His plan is to masquerade as the deceased Denham and join a ranch which is plagued by a gang of Mexican bandits led by the "General." He hopes to prove the gang is behind the killing and end its grip of terror over the countryside. In the process, he is joined by "Squint" Sanders whose principal goal in life is to kill Gray in revenge for the murder of Denham. The two must contend with overzealous law enforcement, vigilante-minded ranch hands, and treacherous bandits.

On the surface, Border Devils appears to be fairly typical of low-budget westerns of the period. It is fairly fast-paced and has a rushed and sometimes confusing plot. Nevertheless, the principal cast (Harry Carey as Gray and George "Gabby" Hayes as Sanders) is superb. Further, there are a number of plot elements (which can't be revealed here without becoming spoilers) that are both inventive and entertaining. Particularly good is a scene where Gray and Sanders are in the gang's clutches and must effect an escape. Border Devils is recommended for fans of 1930s westerns. Most other viewers should probably pass on it.
