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 <>

One of the better program westerns I've run across
24 August 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Young man connected with a mail robbery ring has second thoughts. When he's given an alibi regarding a one crime by a mysterious stranger (our hero named Tom Allen). In order to make the alibi stick Allen is given a job at the ranch. Unknown to anyone, Allen is actually looking into the robberies. This is a very good little western. It moves along at a good clip. I like the film and I'm finding that I'm really enjoying the westerns that were made with star Tom Keene. I don't think there is anything special about the films themselves, I think its Keene who's personality seems to make everything better. I liked this film a great deal. Its actually the sort of thing that I think I'll watch again- which when it comes to program westerns is saying more than I liked it.
