Game Warden Roy Rogers (Roy Rogers) finds the remains of a slaughtered fawn which has been killed by two prison escapees, Bob Oliver (Robert Bice) and Del Roberts (Douglas Fowley.) He finds the sheriff of Susanna Pass is sick and has to take on the task of tracking them down himself, and gets more hindrance than help from ex-bullfighter Carlos Mendoza (Martin Garralaga) and his daughter Rita (Estelita Rodriguez.) Roy checks with local newspaper owner Martin Masters (Robert Emmett Keane)who professes ignorance of the whereabouts of the hunted men, though he is actually in cahoots with Roberts. The latter shows up after Roy leaves and tells Masters he has knifed Bob and left him for dead in the woods. The two have a scheme for dynamiting the lake and hatchery property for the oil underneath, and disposing of the property owner Russell Masters (Francis Ford), Martin's brother, and taking title of the property. At the inquest, after the murder of Russell, Martin is surprised to find that ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Roy Rogers: Work done by hatcheries like this doesn't just mean restocking lakes and streams, it means that sportsmen and the youth of America will have a chance to get away from crowded cities and their troubles, go fighin', and enjoy the privileges our forefathers had. So, good luck to ya, Doc!

Roy takes on a group of oil thieves
9 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

An escaped convict and an evil newspaper owner attempt to take over another man's property to mine the oil they know lies beneath a lake. They stop short of nothing to do this including murder. Lots of action, gunplay, and good western songs.
