It's 1860 and the old Spanish land grants are being surveyed. Montez is after part of Don Regas' rancho and gets the surveyor to alter the boundary. But Don Regas still has the original grant written on a bandanna. Montez sends Indians after it but Bill Cody and Gabby fight them off and a wounded Gabby unknowingly ends up with the missing million dollar deed wrapped around his arm for a bandage.

Good Looking Roy Rogers Vehicle
23 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

The titular character (Roy Rogers) and Gabby Hayes assist a military land survey through dangerous Indian territory. When the young surveyor in charge is secretly blackmailed into cheating a Spanish landowner out of a large portion of his property, Roy and Gabby immediately suspect something's up and vow to get to the bottom of the situation, despite an impending Indian uprising.

Like most Republic B-westerns and other adventures of the late thirties and early forties, this has great atmosphere, striking visuals, and well-staged action sequences. However, this time around the story is a bit typical. Still, the cinematography, direction by the great Joseph Kane, and the performances by Rogers and Hayes make this worth recommending to fans of the genre.

Leading lady Pauline Moore is quite lovely too.
