Produced by Poverty Row company Beaumont Pictures, this obscure Western was the third of four oaters starring veteran leading man Conway Tearle. Tearle played "Senor Jim" Stafford, a Louisiana attorney who rescues Mona Carter (Barbara Bedford) and her young daughter, Carole (Alberta Dugan), from the sheriff's posse. As it turns out, Stafford's own wife, Bunny (Betty Mack), is behind Mona's persecution. Carole is actually Bunny's child from before her marriage to Stafford and Bunny is being blackmailed by the villainous Roxy Stone (Dick Thane). Using both cunning and fisticuffs, Stafford manages to save Mona from a murder rap and reunite her with little Carole, whom she has raised as her own. Written by director Jaccard's wife, Celia, Senor Jim was apparently only released in the Midwest.
