Storyline

Dan Forester, a small town New Mexico newspaper editor, spots an outlaw wanted for murder. He sends word to Whip Wilson, a Texas lawman anxious to make an arrest. When Wilson arrives, he discovers the town is ruled by an outlaw gang running a protection racket and the town's sheriff seemingly unable to cope with the situation. Worse, the local lawman refuses to cooperate with Wilson to bring the fugitive Whip seeks to justice. With Dan's help, Whip sets out to break-up the outlaw gang and arrest the brains behind the criminal enterprise so he can bring his fugitive back to the Lone Star state to stand trial.

Reluctant to extradite
3 November 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Sheriff Whip Wilson and Deputy Rand Brooks cross over from Texas to New Mexico territory chasing fugitive Lane Bradford. But Bradford's running wild free as you please and sheriff Russ Whiteman is reluctant to extradite him.

Bradford's head of gang running a nice protection racket in the area and few are willing to speak out against him. One of those is newspaper editor I. Stanford Jolley normally a villain in these B westerns and his daughter Phyllis Coates.

Turns out Wilson is a friend of Jolley's and he gets involved in the problems of the area just to bring Bradford in.

Though Whip Wilson looks good in the saddle he can't act worth anything. At least in this one Monogram left the romance to Deputy Brooks. Not that Phyllis Coates looks at all comfortable out west.

Still B western fans should like it.
