A more structured story than usual. Young Deesha (Carey Jr.) turns up in Dodge and spots a horse stolen from him with his brand, and he can prove it. Current owner Bowers (Robinson) is upset but forced to absorb the 30$ loss. In fact, it turns out a whole herd of horses with Deesha? s brand has been stolen, and now the law is returning the mounts to their rightful owner. Meanwhile, a lot of well-meaning dupes have lost 30$ purchase money.
Carey Jr.is perfectly cast as the innocent young Deesha, while Robinson shines as the surly first victim. Writer Meston has crafted a carefully structured story-- instead of the usual series of dramatic episodes-- with a definite beginning, middle and end, along with an appropriate upshot.
