Singing cowboy Bob Baker dispenses plenty of Prairie Justice in this 58-minute western. When his father is bushwacked and murdered, Baker vows to bring the mysterious assailants to justice. Posing as an irresponsible drifter, our hero slowly and methodically gathers clues as to the identity of the killers. After five reels of comparative inactivity, he goes after the baddies with both barrels in Reel Six. Dorothy Fay, later the wife of Baker's fellow cowboy troubadour Tex Ritter, is the heroine. The script for Prairie Justice was written by Joseph West, a pseudonym for director George Waggner.
