Indian Affairs agent Jim Blake captures a band of thieves and rustlers preying on the buffalo herds of the Kansas plains, and the Indians, and has them sent to jail, with the gang-leader, Clay Stacy, vowing vengeance. Later,Blake resigns his government position with the intent of becoming a rancher. But he is asked to become a U. S. Marshal and clean up a town that is now being terrorized by the same gang he had sent to prison. His hardest opposition comes from Martha Mercer, who has taken over the job after the former sheriff, her father, was killed by the gang. Written by

At least, Robert Shayne didn't have to waste time explaining away his accent.
Which is what Errol Flynn usually spent 10 minutes doing in each of his
westerns explaning how he acquired his accent while "punching caws down on
the Rye-Ohh-Gran-dee", including 1939's "Dodge City" which is where most
the footage (of any value or had more than two people in the scene) of
1945 short came from. Of course, it's disjointed and choppy; one can't
90 minutes of film into a 20 minute bag without the use of a narrator. For
those who have lots of time to waste, then watch "Frontier Days" and
City" and match up costumes and scenes. Hey, no big deal, just one of
things Warners used to peddle to the exhibitors for filler. The only
complaint here is that they didn't just use the whole 20 minutes with the
camera on Dorothy Malone showing just how a two-sizes too-small western
shirt should be worn.
