Rex Bell was always an agreeable cowboy hero, even when stuck in such bottom-barrel oaters as Law and Lead. On this occasion, hero Jimmy Sawyer (Bell) tries to find out who's been impersonating a famous retired bandit. Since the ex-outlaw is a friend of his, Jimmy is anxious to clear his buddy's name by exposing the phony. Along the way, he falls in love with heroine Hope Hawley (Harley Wood). Because singing cowboys were popular, Rex Bell was required to sing, which he does adequately; he was far more effective when he quit films to become lieutenant governor of Nevada.
