In his second starring vehicle, singing cowboy Rex Allen plays the head of a frontier cattlemen's association. The villain is dishonest meat packer Charles Stevens (Robert Emmet Keane), who has been trying to fix cattle prices to his advantage. When Rex decides to do business with another firm, it requires driving the herds through miles and miles of desolation--and, incidentally, avoiding Stevens' hired guns. The action highlights include a harrowing cattle stampede. Johnny Downs, star of many of collegiate musicals of the 1940s, has a cameo role as a square-dance caller.
