Arriving there with his double-talking friend Shorty, Barry learns that a parcel of his vast ranch has been fraudulently sold to Carol Marland and her ailing (and tiresome) young brother Johnny. Pretending he is only the foreman, and having his cowhands go along with it,Barry allows Carol and her whining, growing-ever-more-tiresome brother to believe that they are the actual owners in order to give him a free hand in running down the swindlers who victimized Carol who, with a brother like hers, was a victim to begin with.Barry learns that brothers Clem and Jonas Allen are the villains and,through a ruse in which they are led to believe there is a hidden treasure on the land they sold Carol, they try to buy it back bidding against Barry, who forces the price up.The Allens end up with a high-price piece of worthless land and Barry ends up ...

Fred Scott plays an opera singer who started out as a cowhand and goes on vacations to his ranch -- which is not as bizarre as it might sound for your average singing cowboy, as Mr. Scott was once the leading baritone for the San Francisco opera. Meanwhile, pretty Marion Shilling and her brother think they own his ranch, and the usual mixture of comedy -- supplied very pleasantly by Cliff Nazarro -- shooting and riding take place.

The direction, like most of the B westerns of this era, is pretty slow by modern standards, but don't let that fool you: cinematographer Robert Cline knows how to compose and light a shot, and director Harry Fraser knows how to keep the story moving along for a very pleasant result.
