Yet another amiable Hoot Gibson western in which the somewhat bumbling star is caught up in, of all things, a Chinese Tong war in San Francisco. Soon enough he is falsely accused of a crime and must hightail it back to Arizona, accompanied along the way by the children (Jackie Morgan, Turner Savage and Billy Kent Schaeffer) of his friend (comic sidekick George Ovey). The foursome hides out at the ranch of Col. Savery (Emmett King) until Gibson manages to win first prize in a sweepstakes and eventually saves the colonel from foreclosure and clear his own name. Always more at ease with comedy than heavy dramatics, Gibson is this time dangerously close to being upstaged by three adorable tots.
