Storyline

Cal Sheridan accompanies Major Goodwin and his daughter, Alice, to the Ruby Valley express station, where dissolute operator Griff Atkins and his cronies, Mack (Jack Rockwell) and Claud Richards have been inciting the Indians to attack the express riders and relay stations on the line. Cal takes over the station, assisted by Shorty. At a nearby relay station, in charge of Old Man Reeves and his daughter Norma, the outlaws kill Reeves and steal the horses. Cal and Alice set out to investigate the Richard brother's hideout and, meanwhile, Norma traces the crime to Atkins. Cal captures the renegades, and Alice tells her father she will remain in Ruby Vally to become Cal's bride. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The mails get through, after a fashion

Pony Post is about that fabled if short lived Pony Express which carried mail to and from the west in 1860. Johnny Mack Brown takes over a troubled express station because the former manager Stanley Blystone has used the place to cover a lot of his gambling debts.

When Brown fires Blystone, Blystone starts getting into all kinds of criminal activities in uneasy partnership with brothers Ray Teal and Jack Rockwell.

Two women vie for Brown's attention. One is Nell O'Day whose father's horse ranch supplies a lot of the mounts for the riders. The other is Dorothy Short whose father Tom Chatterton is the big boss of the Pony Express who put Brown in charge.

Lots of criminal activity, suspected double crossing, and enough riding and shooting for any front row kid. Together with the comedy and comic songs of Fuzzy Knight who is the horse wrangler at the station but wants to be a rider. He even invents a trampoline like device for easy mounting. You have to see how that works out.
