In his final Western for Poverty Row's Metropolitan Pictures, Bob Steele played Bob Hall, a lawman looking into a series of cattle rustlings. The leader of the rustlers, rancher Farley (Ted Adams), hires killer Pete Childers (George Cheseboro) to impersonate a deputy sheriff and gain Sheriff Hall's confidence. The ploy fails and after freeing lovely Helen Jones (Louise Stanley) and her wayward brother, Fred (Kenne Duncan), Sheriff Hall rounds up the gang. Metropolitan Pictures was so ramshackle an outfit that Bob Steele's next employer, the otherwise ill-reputed PRC, seemed almost luxurious in comparison.
