Ma Donovan, owner of the Elkhorn Mine, asks for help from Texas Rangers Tex Wyatt, Jim Steele and Panhandle Perkins. They learn from Frank Burke, manager of the smelter, that if he cannot get ore he will be forced to close, and the miners will have to do business with the Rio Grande Corporation owned by Dan Wakely. Joan Manning, owner of the smelter, arrives from the east, with her fiancée Paul Jackson and, acting on his advice, intends to sell the smelter to Wakely's company. At a meeting, with the Rangers present, Joan instructs Paul to prepare an inventory of the plant for the sale, and he remarks that it is practically bankrupt.

Could have been so much better
29 April 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

In B Westerns, one gets used to fillers like overlong shots of people riding away, overlong fights, songs, etc, but when these appear in a 49 minute movie in abundance, one senses that something is not right. The story created a good deal of tension that was diluted with the filler. An otherwise good movie was flawed by this and by Patti McCarty's bland performance. I have seen her do much better. But, the movie provided a cinematic first when Ms. McCarty called Dave O'Brien a "cowperson". This alone made watching the movie worthwhile.
