Storyline

Gambler Wild Bill, promises to protect the children of Scipio, an unlucky miner who sets out to find "Lord" James, a bandit who stole Jessie, his wife. Toby, Sunny, and Sandy, three gambler friends of Bill's, help him take care of the children. To give Scipio a chance to get Jessie away from James, Bill drives the stage filled with gold to the bank in town, counting upon James and his gang to follow him. James's gang holds up the stage, and Bill shoots them all. Scipio returns home with his repentant wife, but Bill is shot and dies when he reaches the bank. Scipio finds oil on his land, and he and Jessie look forward to a happy future. Written by Pamela Short
