"The Outlaw Deputy" is a simple, no-nonsense sort of western. There isn't any singing and no romance...just a decent story about a good-guy crook who, inexplicably, becomes a lawman!
When the story begins, a local scumbag is upset because his property keeps getting attacked by a gang. You soon learn that the scumbag was a murderer who thought he got away with it...and ruining was the job of this odd vigilante gang. As a result of this, Tim (Tim McCoy) is a wanted man, though he has no inclination towards any more lawlessness and dissolves the gang once their job is complete.
When Tim's friend, a very young cowboy, is murdered in a robbery, Tim now directs his attention to finding those responsible. Surprisingly, however, in the process the folks in the town he's just rode into make him a deputy...and he goes off in search of the killers with the law's blessing! What's next? See the film.
