Storyline

Marshals Wild Bill Hickok (Guy Madison) and his deputy sidekick, Jingles (Andy Devine) are investigating a series of mine-shipment robberies from a stage line serving a silver mine managed by Canfield (Wade Crosby). Helped by stage driver Sandy Smith (Bobby Jordan) and Peggy (Jane Adams), Wild Bill and Jingles prove that Canfield himself engineered the robberies and the crimes cease. Business taken care of in that vicinity, Wild Bill and Jingles ride on to a new case in Outlaw Flats, where a wealthy rancher has been killed and robbed. They question Cindy (Kristine Miller'), the rancher's granddaughter, and Dick (Richard Avonde), her fiancée, about the case. Then, after some more investigating that leads to a fighting chase, Wild Bill and Jingles unmask the real killer and thief. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Two for the price of one isn't that good of a deal.

Especially when the TWO had already shown for free on television, and the ONE, that theatre audiences paid to see, was stitched together from the two freebies.

"Ship it overseas, they won't know the difference."

This compilation "film" came from two episodes in "The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok" cheap-jack syndicated television series starring Guy Madison and Andy Devine. The first half of the "film" utilizes the "Silver Stage Holdup" episode in which Marshals Wild Bill Hickok (Guy Madison) and his deputy sidekick, Jingles (Andy Devine)are investigating a series of mine-shipment robberies from a stage line serving a silver mine managed by Canfield (Wade Crosby).(It takes less time to unreel than the preceding sentence takes to read.) Helped by stage driver Sandy Smith (Bobby Jordan) and Peggy (Jane Adams), Wild Bill and Jingles prove that Canfield himself engineered the robberies and the crimes cease.

(Pardon me...don't do what? Give away the ending? You gotta be kidding. Just reading the cast list has already done that. The best thing about this one is seeing former Dead End/East Side Kid Bobby Jordan trying to look like a stagecoach driver. And, does that right well, thanks to long-shot stock footage.)

Business taken care of in that vicinity, Wild Bill and Jingles go on to a new case...by walking a few feet to the next studio set. They are now in "Outlaw Flats", where a wealthy rancher has been killed and robbed. They question Cindy (Kristine Miller), the rancher's granddaughter, and Dick (Dick Avonde), her fiancée, about the case. Then, after some more investigating that leads to a fighting chase, Wild Bill and Jingles establish that King Bradshaw (John Crawford), ostensibly an honest cattle buyer, was the killer and the thief.

(What? Now don't start that again. He was spotted the minute he identified himself as an honest cattle buyer. Everybody knows there weren't any honest cattle buyers.)
