Directed and written by veteran action specialist J.P. McGowan, this minor Western featured stuntman Yakima Canutt as a cowboy saving a pretty ranch owner (Peggy Montgomery) from a gang of cattle rustlers. Canutt, who had starred in several B-Western series in the late '20s, found his career waning after the changeover to sound and would increasingly concentrate on stunt work. One of three Canutt Westerns released in 1929 by poverty row company Bell Prod., Bad Men's Money featured a veteran cast that also included Lafe McKee, as the heroine's father, John Lowell Russell, Cliff Lyons, Charles "Slim" Whitaker, Bud Osborne and director McGowan himself. The Peggy Montgomery appearing in this and other Westerns at the time was not related, as has previously been asserted, to child star Baby Peggy Montgomery.
