The second in a series of six projected Lane Chandler westerns produced by H&H Productions, this film featured the rugged Chandler as Tex Broderick, a masked bandit wounded by Sheriff Jim Porter (J.P. McGowan) and his posse. Tex hides out at Jean Bennett's Sagebrush General Store and is nursed back to health by the pretty blonde. She is grub-staking an old prospector (George Hayes), who manages to hit the mother lode. Tex attempts to get Jean's share of the gold safely to the bank but is arrested by Sheriff Potter, who has designs on the girl himself. The masked bandit escapes from custody and along with Jean and the prospector, catches a gang of rustlers headed by the nasty Bowie Harris (Charles "Slim" Whitaker). Tex, as it turns out, is really a rancher out to reclaim his stolen cattle. The leading lady of this film, Janet Morgan, was in reality veteran silent screen actress Blanche Mehaffey, who was trying to resurrect a waning career with a new moniker. The Chandler series was discontinued after this extremely weak effort.
