Another recycled western plot rides again.

U.S. Marshals Whip Wilson, Jim Bannon and "Texas" set out to capture a gang that has been collecting on wanted men, "Dead or Alive." The latter are all bought in dead...after the gang has helped them escape prison and a reward has been posted on them. Bringing them in alive won't work, as the escapees might get talky and tell the law who helped them escape in the first place. Whip, with the help of the law, poses as an "escaped" convict named Mason.The latter, fiancé of a girl saloon owner named "Spangles" Calhoun, has been imprisoned on perjured evidence. A reward for "his" (Wilson posing as Mason) capture has been posted. Whip goes to Copper City and "Spangles'" saloon. She, in the law's plot, hides him. The "Dead or Alive" gang, Taggert, Utah, Mike and others, are tipped to "Mason's" hiding place. Bannon gets in with the gang and when they attempt to grab Whip (posing as Mason), all are arrested. As a reward for her help Whip promises "Spangles" to get a full pardon for her lover.
