Bob Dillon discovers gold on his boss' claim, but makes the mistake of telling three of his fellow ranch hands (Reed, Wilkes, & Jenkins), who decide to keep the claim for themselves. They kill Bob and then purchase the ranch land from Foster, by selling back cattle rustles from his range. Dillon's brother, Jim (a Texas Ranger) comes to town to find out who killed his brother. Jenkins is captured by Jim, and is killed by Reed before he gets a chance to talk and Jim is framed for the killing. Jim escapes thanks to old coot Pop to go after Reed and Jenkins despite a wanted dead or alive bounty is put out for him. Good oater, with great pacing and decent script make this a fun hour. Maynard is good again in the rare starting role, and Dwire is fun as the old codger. The rest of the cast is given little to do here and are just wall decoration. Rating, based on B-westerns, 7.
