In one of his final Westerns for the Fox company, Buck Jones promises his dying foster-father, "Honest" John Maggert (Stanton Heck), that he will return the cattle that Maggert rustled from the local ranchers. Not only does Jones live up to his promise, he manages to rescue his foster-brother (Jack Baston) from a life of vice in the process. Veteran director Lambert Hillyer knew how to pace films such as The Branded Sombrero, and Jones once again proved what a fine actor he really was.
