Willis Newcomb and Bart Carroll head a gang engaged in smuggling wanted-American criminals back into the United States from Mexico. Operating from Sharperville, an oil town on the American side of the border, they transport their human cargo in oil drums loaded on trucks. Border Patrolman Tom Sharper intercepts one of the trucks but is overpowered and left for dead. Carroll, having already been paid for the job and not wanting any evidence to walk around, get caught and lead back to him, backs the human-cargo trucks to the edge of a cliff and sends the drums crashing to the boulder far below. Judge Cookie Bullfincher and Border Patrolman Roy Rogers conduct a search for the missing Tom, but the crooks have gone back for him and find him in a state of amnesia. They rob the bank and pin it on Tom. It is now up to Roy to clear his friend and also put an end to Carroll's human-smuggling racket. Written by

In one scene the bad guys are rolling barrels off a truck to stop Roy Rogers and Trigger. Trained jumpers were 'doubling' Trigger, but found the barrels too frightening and shied off. Trigger was finally allowed to try, ridden by Roy's stunt double Joe Yrigoyen. Joe ordered Trigger to jump too soon for a stationary object. Trigger trusted Joe and jumped when Joe commanded. He cleared the barrel, but a bit awkwardly. Trigger did better on the 2nd barrel. By now he thought it was fun, and for the rest of the scene you can see Trigger moving from side to side so he can jump as many barrels as possible! We read the book and got the movie just so we could watch Trigger jumping the barrels in this scene.
