This is a pretty good Roy Rogers Western, with the standard features plus a plot that is a bit less routine than usual. Roy is an investigator for an insurance company, sent to investigate the robbery of a payroll shipment five years earlier. What makes it interesting is that this time neither Roy nor the audience knows who the criminal is - there are several suspects, and Roy has to play detective and use deduction, rather than just chasing the bad guys around. It's not exactly an Agatha Christie-quality mystery, but it's not bad either. There are also the usual songs plus some action scenes. Most fans of Rogers should find this one worth watching.
