Bud 'n' Ben ride a'gin.

This one has Bud 'n' Ben riding in and helping ranch owner Helen try to save her ranch from neighboring rancher Ackroyd, who is also working with the local crooked town boss/saloon owner/sheriff Hennessey. The latter was played by Philo McCullough wearing the same costume he wore in the 1933 Universal jungle serial "Jungle Mystery", and looking like he was on a safari. McCullough wore this costume in many pictures of this period, and he either really liked it or it was all he had in his "have wardrobe, will wear" portfolio. But he doesn't hold the same-wardrobe in the most pictures(not counting stars) record, as Jay Wilsey/Buffalo Bill, Jr. wore the same shirt for over 10 years, until it finally fell apart in a "Lone Rider" picture at PRC in 1942, despite the leather patches on the elbows. Actually, those wore out first.

The billing for Merrill McCormick as Bill McCormick was not a typo per se, as William Merrill McCormick often used William, or Merrill, or W.M. of just plain Bill as his billing name over the years, with Merrill McCormick the most used, especially after 1935.

The strange career of actress Jayne Regan, a 20th Century Fox contract player circa the late 30's, started at Reliable Pictures where she was even given some writing credits, although there is reason to doubt that she wrote a single line of the film she was credited with the Story on. No doubt she was credited for it, but a single writing credit out of nowhere and never another one was not the norm in the B-western genre. What was not out of the norm was one-time-only writing credits seen on the films of Bernard B. Ray and Harry S. Webb(at Reliable) and Harry S. Webb (at Metropolitan.)An early-day case of "follow the money" source in most of these instances.
