Producer-director-star Leo Maloney spared every expense in putting together this very minor western offering about a Texas Ranger (Maloney) tracking down a young man (Chet Ryan) accused of murder. The youngster's father, (Milton Brown), an ex-officer in the Confederate Army, runs the town of King City Judge Roy Bean-style and is all set to hang his own son when the ranger arrives with the real killer. The old man repents and allows the ranger to wed his daughter (Josephine Hill). Maloney shared directorial duties this time with Bob Williamson, offering plenty of footage to a clever pooch, Beans, who played the murdered man's faithful companion.
