Storyline

Texas Rangers Tex Wyatt "Dave O'Brien (I)'), Jim Steele (James Newill) and Panhandle Perkins Guy Wilkerson) are on their way to Custer and, as they ride through the hills, waiting for Jim to finish his song, they save the life of Anne Miller (Nell O'Day), who is being pursued by rustlers. Not disclosing their identities as Rangers, Jim accepts a job offer on the Miller ranch, while Tex and Panhandle ride on to Custer. Jim and Anne come upon Frank Martin (Glenn Strange), the manager of the Custer Land and Cattle Company, trying to evict a number of old people from their homes. The oldsters are pioneers of the county who had been promised homes for the balance of their lives by the recently-deceased ranch owner. Anne is managing the ranch, pending the arrival of Philip Dobbs (Harry Harvey), the trustee of the estate. Tex, on the way to town, witnesses the hold-up of a buckboard carrying three people; Philip Dobbs, Dr. Robert Vanner Robert Barron) and attorney Bolton (I. Stanford Jolley)...

Take a look at that cast list! It reads like a Who's Who of B western movies.

As well as the trio of stars (O'Brien, Newill and Wilkerson) we have Nell O'Day as the helpless heroine, Emmett Lynn as the comical sheriff, Henry Hall as the crusty judge and a hugely impressive array of bad guys including Glenn Strange, I. Stanford Jolley and Charles King.

Sadly, the plot has all but faded from my memory - nearly 12 hours have elapsed since I ejected the DVD from my player - but, roughly speaking,there's some rustling, some trying to drive people off their ranch and people pretending to be other people. More importantly, though, there are numerous free for alls with fixtures and fittings flying in all directions, countless chases on horseback - guns blazing with nary a reload - and some really nice songs from the ever tuneful Newill.
