Singing cowboy Jack Randall does his usual in Monogram's Danger Valley, Randall's second starring film. When someone discovers gold in them thar hills, several disreputable promoters try to take financial advantage of the ensuing rush. By producing a packet of forged papers, two of these crooks manage not only to fleece the prospectors, but to set up an "outlaw colony" in a rattletrap ghost town. Randall and his pal Lucky (Hal Price) do their best to protect the miners and rout the villains. Though a passable singer, Jack Randall is somewhat stiff as an actor; he was far more natural in a reel of Monogram outtakes, in which he constantly curses himself out after blowing his lines.
