John Wayne goes from a no ambition bus man to a hard driving trucker. That's what the love of Tinsel Town beauty Mary Porter (Louise Latimer) will do to a man. Of course being framed for the death of his partner and Mary's brother Charlie (Emerson Treacy) gives much added incentive. Duke is hired by the most lovable grouch Robert McWade who needs some extra aspirin due to all of Wayne's antics. 'Fish' McCorkle is now Wayne's side man, perfectly played by Aussie Harry Allen but never count out Padula played by the great western "heavy" LeRoy Mason. Great silent and character actors, Theodore von Eltz, Tully Marshall, and Grace Goodall brilliantly play supporting roles to make California Straight Ahead a most enjoyable experience.
