Storyline

John Clark (Bob Steele) and his deaf pal, Bootch Collum (Buck Connors), are trailed by U. S. Marshal Lamar Bly (Jack Rockwell), who thinks they are part of The Kootney Kid's (Earl Dwire) gang, which had just held up the stage coach. But the gang attacks the pair, and Bly joins them in the gunfight. Bly is wounded and is taken to a Mexican's camp to recover. He gives John his badge and authorizes him to take up the hunt. The Kid, unknown to John by sight, is on a ranch which he hopes to gain legal possession of as it has oil. It is really John's by right, which he does not know until informed by his sweetheart, Joan Vallon (Roberta Gale.) The Kid has taken a letter from the stage holdup which he is using to establish his identity as the rightful owner named Everett Tarkington Clark, John's real name.

Somewhat amusing Bob Steele vehicle here. First off, Bob Steele WAS one of the more handsomer cowboy actors out there, and I actually look forward to his movies. Here he plays a cowboy off to see his Mom after many a year separation. Unfortunately, when he gets into town, he finds out that dear old Mom has passed on, and that someone is trying to hustle his Mom's land to his own uses. With the help of a deaf Sidekick (!!) Steele tries to prove his case in front of a land claims court (wow, exciting.. I'm sure the judge knew this too, since he's bellowing his lines to make it more interesting). The land claims court disagrees, and tries to arrest the two for impersonating a sheriff (don't ask). So Steele has to Take The Law Into His Own Hands! Entertaining for the fact that Steele makes it entertaining, I did like the amusing performance of Buck Conners as his sidekick as well.
