Storyline

In one of the most-used plots of the B-western genre, sometimes officially and sometimes just "borrowed" (see Movie Connections), Sunset Carson (Sunset Carson) is a member of an outlaw gang led by Gil Santos Robert Filmer), who have been holding up gold shipments dispatched from Laramie City. Sunset rebels when the gang leaves old Jeff Winters (Hank Patterson) to die alone after he has been wounded in a hold-up gun fight. Sunset and Jeff break with the gang and begin operating on their own, or plan to. On their first attempt, they rout Santos and his gang, and Sally Stoner (Marie Harom'), daughter of Laramie City Sheriff Frank Stoner (Edmund Cobb), assumes they are honest citizens who just saved the gold shipment. She takes Jeff to a doctor and Sunset is made a deputy sheriff. Shortly afterwards, Santos and his gang pull a robbery and implicate the innocent Sunset, and the aroused townspeople, convinced they have been double-crossed, are ready to shoot Sunset on sight.

Maybe the connections can remain here.

At one point in time, the site displayed three movie connections showing this 1946 film was a remake of: "The Lone Rider(1930)", with Buck Jones, and "The Pocatello Kid (1931)" with Ken Maynard, and "The Thundering West (1939)" with Charles Starrett. Evidently, some misinformed contributor, who most likely has never seen the other films, sent the site a vastly-incorrect deletion request of those three connections. Same plot in all four films...same incidents...different character names. I've resubmitted those connections. But that won't keep the uninformed deleter from deleting them again. But he sure can't delete them from here.
