FBO's little red-headed cowboy hero Buzz Barton and grizzled Frank Rice once again rights the wrongs of the West in this pleasant oater which was augmented with a music score and various sound effects. This time, the two friends head below the border to the Mexican village of Cajón. The villagers are terrorized by a mysterious outlaw known only as El Lobo and divided in the question of marriage between the mayor's son, Francisco (Duncan Renaldo) and the fiery Dolores (Natalie Joyce). The mayor himself (Tom Lingham) favors a match between Dolores and American Pete Sangor (Bill Patton), while Red Hepner (Barton) and sidekick Hank Robbins (Rice) actively campaign on behalf of Francisco. Red is jailed after pelting Sangor with tomatoes and is thus of no use when the American kidnaps Francisco. During their subsequent search for Francisco, Red and Hank learn that Sangor is actually El Lobo and the film ends with the inevitable showdown on Cajón's main street. Veteran comedian Milburn Morante, who had replaced Rice as Hank Robbins in the previous "Red Hepner" release, The Little Savage, returned, this time in a supporting role.
