In the seventh of his nine Westerns for Gower Gulch company Spectrum, former silent screen cowboy Bill Cody played a U.S. government agent who infiltrates a gang of smugglers operating on the border to Mexico. Cody is aided by a Mexican counterpart (Martin Garralaga) but complications arise when he falls in love with the gang leader's innocent sister (Molly O'Day). The story, which was not too taxing for anyone to follow, was written by Swedish-born actress Zara Tazil. Leading man Cody looked emaciated and ill at ease throughout but the film proved one of the former silent hero's better sound assignments.
