Inasmuch as western star Charles Starrett gained screen fame as the Robin Hood-like "Durango Kid", it stands to reason that Starrett would head the cast of Robin Hood of the Range. The star plays Steve Marlowe, the foster son of railroad manager Henry Marlowe (Kenneth McDonald). When it becomes apparent that the railroad is using underhanded methods to drive local homesteaders off their land, Steve adopts the guise of "The Vulcan", a legendary champion of justice. Of interest is the fact that the hero hasn't any "love interest"; the leading lady is Steve's sister, played by Kay Harris. The film's 54 minutes are fleshed out by the musical interludes of the Jimmy Wakely Trio.
