Eastern educated Bob Culpepper, along with grizzled prospector Solitary, hit the mother lode and head to Gold Town to stake their claim. Along the way they chase off a gang of stagecoach robbers, led by the oafish Missouri, who works for shady Gold Town saloon owner Jack Hanway. Bob immediately falls in love with one of the passengers, pretty songstress Nellie Brian. Things do not go well for Bob back in town, however, as not only does Hanway, jealous of Nellie's affection for Bob, frame him for the robbery and has him arrested, but cajoles the existence of the big gold strike out of a drunken Solitary, with plans to stake the claim himself the next morning.

This is a little treasure that I remember from the good old days when the CBC used to show these cool second features from the RKO catalog on Saturday mornings. It's a solid, very entertaining B western featuring Richard Dix who gets mixed up in the gold rush and some owlhoots who frame him for a stagecoach robbery. Although his film is less tongue-in-cheek than a lot of these matinee westerns, there is a great scene featuring the three outlaws, who really did rob the stage, in the saloon. The bartender casually mentions that the stage got robbed, and they simultaneously spit booze out of their mouths! And there's a cool climax in a dust storm. This is a great treat from yesteryear; I hope it resurfaces again some day.
