Summoned by his friend, Ranny Williams (Frank Rice), Sim Baldwin (Buck Jones), rides to the aid of Circle O Ranch owner Ruth Cameron (Marguerite De La Motte), who is under pressure to sell out to Dan Blake (Albert J. Smith), who wants control of a dam on the ranch that is central to the town water supply. Sim arrives to find that Ranny has been ambushed; vowing to avenge the murder of his old friend, Sim takes up Ruth's fight and incurs the enmity of Blake. Blake begins to rustle the ranch cattle but Sim lays a trap and captures several of the rustlers and marches them pantless into town. Blake threatens Sim with a showdown unless he leaves town. Fat chance.Written by

In his second talking film Buck Jones proved in Shadow Ranch that he had a voice that would serve him well in sound westerns. However one rule of B westerns was violated here.
Buck and sidekick Frank Rice split up and go their separate ways when Jones gets a letter from Rice about trouble on a place he's working on called Shadow Ranch. Someone is trying to frighten owner Margaret De La Motte and her aunt Kate Price into selling the place. When Jones arrives he finds his old sidekick shot dead and being buried on Boot Hill.
Sidekicks are not killed in B westerns they have to provide comic relief and Rice was funny in his time in Shadow Ranch.
Of course Jones finds who's responsible and exacts some justice. Some kudos have to go to shotgun wielding Kate Price who is sidekick to the leading lady. A formidable woman with both Brogue and buckshot.
Nice film, but nothing new here.
