Texas Buddies is a modern western set in 1919 and flier Bob Steele has come home to Texas to find his parents dead, his land and even his horse sold, and the girl he left behind up and married without even a Dear John letter. Old friend of the family Gabby Hayes takes Steele in.
By sheer luck the two of them are on the scene and foil the robbery of a mail plane which even back in the day was a federal crime. Steele and Hayes work with the sheriff William Dyer to apprehend the bandits. Steele even wins back his horse in a card game with the villain who does not know they suspect him. And he wins the love of aviatrix Nancy Drexel in a character clearly modeled on Amelia Earhart.
This one is a good product from the Poverty Row studios and Gabby Hayes is a bit more serious here than he would be later on. Gabby even gets a chance at a fast draw against one of the villains. You would NEVER see a sidekick doing that.
