Johnny Mack Brown, operating out of the Marshal's office, poses as a band bandit and stage robber, aided by his friend, stage driver Clancy, in order to learn the identity of a gang that has been pulling off stagecoach and bank robberies. The gang is headed by widowed ranch owner Ma Posey and includes Blackie Marshall, Deuce Logan, Tad and a traveling bank examiner, Fleming, who tips the gang off on money movement. Written by

Marshal Johnny Mack is trying to track down a gang of bank and stage robbers - when is he not? - this time with the help of young(ish) Clancy, played with energy by Jimmy Ellison, veteran of many a Hoppy movie.
Kenne Duncan, for once on the side of righteousness, is the well meaning but naive sheriff, besotted by charming widow, Ma Mosey (Barbara Woodell)and blissfully unaware that she is the leader of the crooks.
Phyllis Coates as Goldie helps the good guys whilst romancing the bank teller.
This one starts off brightly but the thin plot is - unlike Johnny Mack
sorely in need of padding, hence lots of extended shots of assorted
groups of riders galloping in different directions to fill up a few minutes here and there.
That's what happens when you cut out the comic sidekick.
