Ma Conway, owner of a cattle ranch and publisher of the Laramie Bulletin, wages an up-hill battle to have Wyoming join the Union. She refuses to be intimidated by corrupt politician Lee Landow and crooked banker Jesse Dixon, teamed up to fight her. Led by cowhand Eddie Reed and foreman Uncle Ezra, the Conway cattle drive is blocked at La Platte Pass by the Dixon henchmen, led by Ringo.

Cheyenne, on his way to a job in Laramie, turns down Ma's offer but when he gets to Laramie he finds he has been hired by Landow and Dixon to ruin Ma's cattle business and, in order to carry out the plan, he accepts Ma's ranch-job offer.

This film had its earliest documented telecast in New York City Thursday 3 February 1949 on the Film Theater of the Air on WCBS (Channel 2). See more »
The film is set in 1890, but the wall-mounted telephone the villains use to communicate with each other didn't exist yet and phone service wouldn't have been available in frontier Wyoming just 14 years after the telephone had been invented. See more »
Eddie Dean, the lanky singing cowboy, delivers another action-filled entry in his 1940's western film series. Joined by a pre-whip Lash LaRue, Eddie once again saves the day and in the process helps reform the Cheyenne Kid.
While the budget for this film was low and the music somewhat mediocre, it still delivers a bang for the buck. Dean was always beloved by his fans and on the strength of his film appearances with Eddie Dean, Lash LaRue later graduated to his own western film series. If you are a fan of the B-Westerns, don't miss this chance to see two of the icons in the same film. Action-filled with an interesting plot !
