Storyline

Arriving in Red River to join their friend Chet Andrews in the ownership of a cattle ranch, Jim Carey and his pal Ike discover that Chet has been jailed for resisting the efforts of a swindler, Scott Yager, to evict him from the ranch. Yager, through a Spanish land grant, and with the help of a crooked Judge, has proven ownership to all the land in the Red River territory. He and his henchmen have been evicting all of the ranchers who won't pay rent on their own ranches. Jim and Ike gain the confidence of a crusading newspaper editor, Sam Sterling and his daughter Carol. Jim and Ike, dressed in black robes and masks, attend a meeting of the ranchers and offer to help them. They join Yager's gang and, following orders, collect the rent money, but then don their robes as Mr. Justice, and hold up Yager's other collectors and return the money. Jim breaks into Yager's office and finds proof that the land grant is a fake, but Yager discovers the robes worn by Jim and Ike, both as Mr. ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Okay Oater
14 April 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Routine oater with the usual ingredients, but an interesting plot twist. Swindler Yager (Dew) uses phony Spanish land grant to evict ranchers unless they pay rent to stay. Few can afford to. Jim and Ike (Holt & Edwards) devise clever scheme involving black robes disguise to try to foil the scam. There's one well staged brawl, and some hard riding, but little good scenery since filming is in greater LA. Edwards is kind of lame comedy relief, showing why Richard Martin (Chito) was such an asset to Holt's later matinée series. I wish director Selander had given us more close-ups of the characters, especially Holt. As it is, events are photographed from an impersonal distance. Anyway, it's an okay oater without being anything special.
