Less-than-charismatic silent screen cowboy Buffalo Bill, Jr. portrayed the title role in this average western from assembly-line company Action Pictures. Capably directed by future MGM stalwart Richard Thorpe, the Buffalo Bill, Jr. westerns were geared to children and mainly exhibited in the hinterlands. Buffalo plays a drifter this time, who happens upon an old miner and his daughter (Betty Morrissey). Father and daughter are having the usual trouble with claim jumpers, but Buffalo quickly rights every wrong. Buffalo Bill, Jr. later acted under the name Jay Wilsey.
