Near the border, outlaws are hijacking trains and using them to transport large quantities of rifles. Roy gets involved when the train that was to pick up his cattle fails to stop. Helping out the Sheriff, Roy brings in a suspect. He identifies him as a wanted man but the outlaw escapes with Roy as a hostage. Roy is taken to the gang leader's house where another hijacking is being planned. They also plan to get rid of Roy. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

An average outing for the King of the Cowboys .....
6 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Roy Rogers and Trigger (The Smartest Horse in the Movies) are at it again, helping a border Sheriff get to the bottom of some stolen rifles that are being sought. Rogers ends up in hot water, but is able to solve the crime through his normal cool determination. Gordon Jones is along as his sidekick, but he was never as solid as Gabby Hayes or Pat Brady had been ........

The music was well done by Roy, with support from Foy and the Riders of the Purple Sage. However, the script and supporting cast are not up to the earlier high standards for Roy's films. It's good entertainment for Roy's legion of fans, but compared to his other classics, this oater is only so-so ..... Fun, but not memorable.
