One-legged Western maverick Robert J. Horner came up with yet another loser in this dead-on-arrival oater starring silent screen cowboy Jack Perrin and his handsome horse Starlight. On the trail of a gang of smugglers, deputy sheriff Jack Saunders (Perrin) is knocked unconscious. He awakens to find Kent, one of the smugglers, murdered. With the assistance of the sheriff's daughter (Gloria Joy) and a comical prospector (Jimmy Aubrey), Saunders manages to round up the gang, including the leader, Steward (George Chesebro), who confesses to murdering his henchman. A terrible Western in all departments, Lariats and Six Shooters even incorporated the already then overused scene of bathing beauties who must stay in the water because a villain has absconded with their clothing. Not a bad actor when given half a chance, Jack Perrin was sadly wasted in ineptly produced and directed fare such as this.
