One of the few non-western releases from Sam Katzman's Victory Productions, Put on the Spot stars Eddie Nugent as G-Man Bob Andrews. When Joe Bradley (George Walsh) is railroaded into prison for a murder he didn't commit, Andrews takes it upon himself to clear the man. Digging up new evidence, our hero discovers that culprits are involved in smuggling activities along the Rio Grande. The script allows Andrews to travel several hundred miles along both sides of the border, though it is clear that most of the picture was filmed in Chatsworth California. Based on a novel by Peter B. Kyne, Put on the Spot went into production as Rio Grande Romance.
