The third western released by poverty row company Syndicate Film Exchange, this film starred the strapping Tom Tyler in the title role. Tyler's Jack Carter arrives at the Watkins ranch just in time to save Dad Watkins and his large brood from a gang of swindlers. Watkins, Jr. (Kip Cooper), meanwhile, is attracted to the outlaws' lifestyle, but Tyler sets a fine example for the youngster who eventually helps the hero defeat the gang and save sister Natalie Joyce from a fate worse than death in the hands of nefarious Al Ferguson. Syndicate westerns were made on location in dusty California hamlets, eschewing expensive exteriors while relying on a stock company of veteran performers who might not have earned any acting awards but at least looked authentic.
