Just as Lucky Webster (Fred Kohler Jr). is being questioned about a recent train robbery, Tom Allen (Tom Keene) appears at his ranch and confirms his alibi. Lucky offers Tom a job with the gang he is secretly working for. Lucky's sister, Julie (Jean Trent), doesn't realize he is mixed up with an outlaw gang. Tom, a U.S. Marshal working undercover with Sheriff Big Bill Collins (Glenn Strange), asks the sheriff about respected citizen and bank president Jeff Gordon (LeRoy Mason), whom he suspects of working with the mail robbers. Tom plants a dictophone in Gordon's office and hears him tell gang leader Jim Rivers (Karl Hackett) that the next shipment is $15,000 and gives Rivers information to make the hold-up. Julie, accidently, tips Lucky off to Tom's real identity and Tom is ambushed as he rides back to the gang's hideout. Written by Les Adams <>

Alibis his way into the gang
22 April 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Tom Keene and sidekick Frank Yaconelli get into an gang by providing an alibi for gang member Fred Kohler, Jr. who sheriff Glenn Strange is chasing after a stagecoach robbery. That was the general idea because Keene and Yaconelli want to find out who's behind these robberies. Since these robberies are of the US mail it's their federal jurisdiction.

A word to the wise is always stay away any crimes involving the mails because that's federal and there's no place to run to. But here the villains are targeting the mails for a specific purpose in mind for the boss.

This is a Monogram Picture so don't expect too much. But Keene as western hero is easy to take and Yaconelli is a funny guy.
