Plot number 6259A -- mistaken identity -- is trotted out for the Republic sagebrusher Powder River Rustlers. Allan "Rocky" Lane stars as a wandering cavalier who stumbles across a scheme to defraud an entire village. A stranger has arrived in town, claiming to be a railroad agent who has been assigned to collect $50,000 to finance a new train line. Lane knows that the stranger is a fraud, but he bides his time, hoping to capture the stranger's boss and to rescue the real agent. That Powder River Rustlers will contain a plenitude of action is tipped off by the fact that several smaller roles are filled by well-known Hollywood stunt doubles.
