When Tim Barrett rides into Carabinas, his reputation as a lawman precedes him. Rescuing Polly Loomis from the unwanted attentions of a saloon ruffian, he learns her mother married ranch foreman Nick Grindel shortly before her death, and left everything to him in her will. Nick has proposed marriage to his stepdaughter, and she fears violence if her hot-blooded brother Dick finds out. When a body is found at the Bow Knot, Tim barely rescues Dick from a necktie party and is deputized to investigate when Dick confesses to a crime he didn't commit. Written by

One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Pretty good McCoy programmer, more plot heavy than most, but with a neat twist ending. Deputy Tim's got to figure out how to keep the Loomis ranch from falling into the hands of bad guys, and keep Polly Loomis' bother from shooting bad guy Grindel who's romancing her. There's some hard riding, not much fast shooting (except for the beginning), or flying fists. However, the one brawl looks more like a real one than the usual choreographed sock-on- the-jaw. And catch Tim's 10-gallon hat, bigger than anything this side of Pikes Peak. Also, catch two oddities in the cast. Dwight Frye of Dracula (1931) and Frankenstein (1931) where he played deformed characters; also, Mischa Auere who played "mad Russians" in a number of comedies of the 30's and 40's. Not exactly the types you expect to find on horseback. All in all, the 60-minutes is a decent programmer, if nothing special.
