A ranch foreman (Fred Humes) is falsely accused of a robbery actually committed by his look-alike cousin (also Humes), a feared villain known as the "Night Hawk." The plot thickens when the criminal Humes pretends to be his law-abiding cousin, but everything is quickly solved -- and without any expensive split-screen wizardry. Humes, a former stunt-man whose acting abilities, or lack thereof, became a decided liability in the sound era, was not the best choice to play a potentially difficult dual-role, and the film was further handicapped by employing too many comic sidekicks (five in all, including Ben Corbett, Pee Wee Holme and the obese Scotty Mattraw).
