Nancy Evans, lovely circus owner, has a ranch that she's never visited, but for sentimental reasons won't sell to Mike Abbott. Her partners, secretly in league with Abbott, sabotage the circus to force Nancy to sell the ranch; instead, she goes there to live.

This is a great Western Film for 1939 starring John Wayne, (Stony Brooke), who plays the role of a good guy who gets himself involved with solving other peoples problems. This time Stony helps out a gal named Nancy Evans,(Carole Landis) who is a Circus owner and very successful, who also owns a ranch she has never seen. There are guys very interested in Nancy Evans ranch property and seek to do anything within their powers to force Nancy to sell her property. These guys destroy her circus business and try to force her into bankruptcy in order for her to sell her ranch which is worth $75,000 because a dam is suppose to be built on her property. Nancy has a nice Circus horse who dances to music but is a very fast horse, so Stony, Lullaby Joslin and Ray Corrigan enter him in a house race and he wins $2,500.00 which helps Nancy. However, Lullaby Joslin,(Max Terhune) is robbed of this money and Nancy is faced with many more problems. There is a gorilla that runs all around chasing everybody by the name of Willie The Gorilla,(Naba) which adds to some comedy to this film. It was great to see Carole Landis, so young and pretty in this role, I remember her in two great film she starred in "I Wake Up Screaming" and "One Million B.C." One of the film locations in this film were filmed at Ray Corrigan's ranch in California.
