Wooden silent screen cowboy Bob Custer played a Texas oil man rescuing a female rancher (Marjorie Zier) from a gang of land grabbers in this low-budget oater produced by genre specialist FBO. Custer and director Percy Pembroke attempted to bolster their little film by casting the supporting roles with genre veterans such as flat-nosed Lew Meehan, stunt-rider/villain Bud Osborne, grizzled sidekick Milburn Morante, and Inez Gomez, the wife of Western star George Kesterson (AKA Art Mix). The result of all this talent was, alas, mediocre at best. Billing himself Harry P. Crist, future Western director Harry Fraser functioned as assistant director on this and several other Custer oaters.
