Charles Starrett plays two-fisted frontiersman Dart Collins in this slick Columbia "B" western. Collins wants to find out who's behind a series of gold-shipment robberies. So does heroine Judy Garfield (Iris Meredith), whose stage transport business faces foreclosure if the holdups continue. It comes as no surprise that the crimes are being orchestrated by the very people who want to force Judy out of business. Periodically interrupting the action are the musical interpolations of the Sons of the Pioneers. Outlaws of the Prairie established the Charles Starrett series' on-screen "family": hero Starrett, heroine Iris Meredith, patriarch Edward J. LeSaint, villains Dick Curtis and Norman Willis, and hangers-on Edmund Cobb, Art Mix and Hank Bell.
