In a case of one for all and all for one, D'Artagnan-ish ranger Buck Adams (Pete Morrison) and his two colleagues, Manuel Lopez (Lew Meehan in a rare sympathetic role) and English Charlie (Milburn Morante), rescue lovely Rose Warner (Peggy Montgomery) from being kidnapped by a vicious gang of cutthroats. Writer-director Forrest Sheldon obviously kept one eye squarely on Alexander Dumas while creating this pleasant silent western, just like pulp writer William Colt McDonald whose Three Mesqueteers became a popular series in the thirties. The Peggy Montgomery appearing in this and other westerns was not child star Baby Peggy, whose family name was also Montgomery.
