Ticket buyers got two Tim McCoys for the price of one with this low-budget Western, one of McCoy's eight Lightning Bill Carson oaters for producer Sam Katzman's Victory Pictures. This time government agent "Lightning Bill" impersonates a look-alike bandit about to be released from jail. But before Carson completely gained the confidence of chief henchman Slim Marsh (Ted Adams) and saloon singer Jessie Treadwell (Joan Barclay), the real outlaw, Trigger Mallory (also McCoy), shows up. With the assistance of his usual sidekick, Magpie McGillicuddy (Ben Corbett), Carson is able to sidestep a well-laid trap and send Mallory straight back to the hoosegow. Rather unusually for a B-Western leading lady, Joan Barclay, who sings "A Rainbow Is Riding the Range" by Johnny Lange and Lew Porter, plays the bandit's girlfriend and remains quite unrepentant until the final reel.
