Roy Rogers (as Vance) is appointed sheriff of a Texas town, following the Civil War. A former Confederate P.O.W., Mr. Rogers faces wicked carpetbaggers, led by Cy Kendall (as Ballard). Assisting Rogers is his ever present pal George "Gabby" Hayes (as Gabby), who happens to have a fetching niece, Marjorie Reynolds (as Jeanie). Sally Payne is along for the ride, as Belle Starr. Rogers must be the "Robin Hood" of the title, protecting the people from big tax collectors.
Rogers and Ms. Payne have a cool brawl (not with each other) and the acting from Rogers and team are a notch above the norm. However, Rogers' role of an ex-Confederate, in a post-Civil War setting, lends itself to some understandable questions about the representation of race - not the worst you'll see, but enough to stand out in a western with little else to notice.
