Warner Brothers and Monogram before them who originally produced this short subject western were probably anticipating the coming of television. A lot of early television westerns were cut down versions of B western movies. Roy Rogers films and the Hopalong Cassidy series were the ones most exhibited that way on the small screen at first.
B western hero Dennie Moore comes to a new town where it seems they have a foreign legion type code. Everybody there is wanted, but if they keep their noses clean they can stay there. Moore gets into a scrape, but backs down because his girl Louise Stanley doesn't approve of violence.
Of course as in every western, as Randolph Scott so eloquently put it, 'there are some things a man can't ride around'. That's all I can say here.
When Bill Boyd first had the Hopalong Cassidy series exhibited on television, he edited out the bare essentials and provided voice over to fill in the plot holes. I suspect that's what was done here with Art Baker's narration filling in the gaps between the original Monogram film and what you see.
It's an old Monogram, so don't expect the best production values, but Wells Fargo Days would have made a decent enough half hour television western program.
