A very low-budget Western, Outlaw Rule stars former fullback Reb Russell as a lawman in disguise coming to the aid of a young rancher, Danny Taylor (John McGuire), who has been falsely accused of killing the local sheriff. After performing a bit of sleuthing, Reb discovers that the real killer is the sheriff's deputy, Lindstrom (Al Bridge), who readily confesses after being confronted with a box of rattlesnakes. In town, meanwhile, the bank is robbed by Blaze Tremaine (Yakima Canutt), one of Lindstrom's accomplices, and a citizens' committee decides to hire The Whistler (Jack Rockwell), a noted gunman and agent for the cattlemen's association. The latter, however, uses the confusion to perform a bit of skullduggery of his own, but is eventually hunted down by Reb, who reveals himself to be the real Whistler.
