Belle Andrews' (Constance Bennett) gambling hall burns down in the Chicago fire of 1871 and, now penniless, she accepts Jim Farrel's (Warren William) invitation to accompany him to Powder River, Montana, to open a gambling casino. Farrel has plans to get control of all the land in Powder River by hiring henchmen to file claims on the land, a proceeding overlooked by the settlers. On the stagecoach to Powder River, they meet Wild Bill Hickok (Bruce Cabot). Once there, Farrel has his claim jumpers go to work, and even has Ned Nolan (Russell Simpson) convicted of a framed-up murder charge, and fixes the jury just to be safe. Hickok then begins to organize the settlers to fight back against Farrel. Written by

Ray Teal is credited onscreen as "Beadle", but when he is sworn in as a witness, his name is "Jack Handley". Similarly, Dick Botiller is credited as "Sager" but is called "Mr. Knox", and Elliott Sullivan is credited as "Bart Hanna" but is called "Mr. Harris". See more »
I just read the comment left by the gentleman back in 2005 and am really glad he enjoyed the film. I only wish to correct the info here under "soundtracks". "The Lady Got a Shady Deal" was composed by my grandfather, M.K.Jerome, as noted, but the lyric was written by Charles Newman, not 20th Century-Fox composer Alfred Newman. For some strange reason neither are credited on the film itself. M.K. had to rehearse Bennett in the song of course, and said she wasn't exactly a picnic to work with! My father (who was then working on the lot as a messenger) said he had to help Bennett the day she came to the music dept. to rehearse with my grandfather. She came out in the "Grand Manner" of the stars of the period, chauffeured limo, maid, secretary, dogs and husband Gilbert Roland all bringing up the rear. But, having said all that, I've always loved Bennett's work, which is what prompted me to look this title up in the first place, and as somebody else said, in reference to "After Office Hours", she deserves to be remembered!
