Most of Ken Maynard's westerns were highly distinctive, if not always good. Heroes of the Range is okay but virtually indistinguishable from the horse operas being ground out by every other cowboy star. In this one, the hero poses as a notorious gunslinger, the better to infiltrate a gang of stagecoach outlaws. Among Maynard's tasks is to rescue a kidnapped female express clerk named Joan (June Gale), who is being forced by bandit leader Bull (Harry Woods) to reveal the routes and schedules of upcoming gold shipments. Our hero not only rescues the girl but manages to beat up two of the baddies simultaneously!
