Storyline

Tim Ross, formerly an agent for the Justice Department, is traveling with the Doc Shaw medicine show as a sharpshooter. He runs into an old friend, Tex Weaver, who is working undercover to roundup a bank-robbing band. Later, while Tex is holding a coin for Tim to shoot out of his hand at a show exhibition, another shot is fired from the outer circle of spectators at the same time as Tim fires. Tex falls dead. Everybody, but Tim and saloon girl Goldie Harris, Tex's girlfriend, is convinced that Tim misfired and hit his friend. Goldie has picked up the coin Tex was holding and knows Tim did not miss his intended target. Tim rejoins the federal service and swears vengeance on the real killer, Runniyon, a member of the gang. Disguised as a Mexican caballero (with an added mustache and a large sombrero and a larger accent),Tim goes to Clearwater, where he meets Goldie, who sees through his disguise and agrees to help him find the killer of her lover. Tim's investigations convince him that ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Another one of those Tim McCoy western movies that seem to spring up like rabbits when looking up the history of the Western. In this one, he gets a job in a traveling medicine show (helping the man who runs it skirt the law at the beginning reel) and getting involved in helping to try to bust a series of bank robberies in the region. His past friend is a G-Man who has infiltrated the group is soon found out and dealt with.. Is Mccoy next? This film isn't all that bad. Tim McCoy certainly doesn't really rank with the best of the movie cowboys (well, #1 problem would be his hat), but he's somewhat entertaining, gets into a lot of wimpy looking fights (he throws his hat a weapon1 Ooh! Tough!) shoots his gun totally wrong and again treats us to his Mexican impersonation (like he did in Lighting Carson Rides Again). Good for some entertainment.
