Considered by many the prototypical low-budget Ken Maynard oater, Range Law starred Maynard as Hap Connors, a prisoner making a daring escape -- in a garbage truck, no less -- to search for the villain who framed him. En route, he obtains a job on a ranch belonging to blond Ruth Warren (Frances Dade), whose fiancé, Blont (Frank Mayo), proves to be the villain who framed the innocent cowboy in the first place. Arrested by the sheriff (Jack Rockwell), Hap manages to escape with the help of one of Blont's henchmen, Blont hoping to get a better shot at his rival. The scheme, of course, backfires and a vindicated Hap is reunited with Ruth.
