Kip Allen aka The Durango Kid(Charles Starrett)uncovers the smuggling of stolen U.S. minted gold. A ring of greedy cowpokes use an old prospector named Grubstake(Emmett Lynn)as the front for the transport of stolen gold supposedly from his "lost mine". He goes along with the plot in order to impress his visiting daughter Gail played by Pat Parrish. The Durango Kid is also a Texas Ranger and off handedly has help from Tex Harding in uncovering the dirty dealin's going on. Tex appears to be in competition for the interest of Grubstake's daughter Gail and is none too shy in joining in with singing with a group of talented ranch hands(The Jesters). Al Bridge is flawless as the villain Lucky. Also of note is the comic relief provided by the absent minded Cannonball(Dub Taylor). No real surprises here. Just your typical western of the 40s lasting about 97 minutes.
