Dan Crackett, Secret Service Agent, is looking for a counterfeit money ring. He has tracked the stolen plates to somewhere in Mexico. In Washington, Saxby sends Brass Bancroft to El Paso to team up with Dan. They make plans to meet in a gambling saloon in Mexico called the 'Silver Slipper'. It is there that the gang kills Dan and pins the murder on Brass. Brass, with the help of Gabby and Elaine, must stay out of jail so that he can find where the press is working and who is behind the counterfeit bills. Written by

The footage of the opening street scene of the Mexican town was previously used as the opening scene of the border town in Bordertown (1935). A short section of the same scene was later used during the opening Mexicali sequence in The Hitch-Hiker (1953). See more »

This is the second film Ronald Reagan made as Brass Bancroft, Secret Service agent, and according to Reagan the only film he made that he hated and refused to watch.
Reagan as a Secret Service agent is sent to Mexico to recover stolen Mint plates, along the way he becomes handcuffed to Rosella Towne, both of whom are going to be blown up when they escape at the last minute.
At under an hour this film is a strict programmer designed for the kiddies on a Saturday morning matinee.
It has an unbelievable plot, but it is not as bad as the film has been made out to be over the years. The producer, Bryan Foy, along with Reagan tried to stop Warner Brothers from releasing the film, and were successful in having the film released everywhere except Los Angeles.
Apparently when Reagan went to an out of town theater to see the film the ticket-taker said to Reagan "You should be ashamed," and Reagan promptly left the theater.
