A cute title, the stalwart presence of Wally Wales, brisk direction by Richard Thorpe, and scenic locations at Julian near San Diego elevated this silent Western above the ordinary. Wales played Kent Blake, a deputy sheriff assigned to catch a gang of dope smugglers operating along the border to Mexico. Kent's girlfriend, Wanda (Betty Baker), meanwhile, is promised a great singing career by nefarious lawyer John Martin (Gordon Standing), who brings the girl with him to the big city. Having brought the dope smugglers to justice, Kent goes after the lawyer, who has dumped poor Wanda along the way. Skedaddle Gold was produced on the cheap by Lester F. Scott, Jr.'s Action Pictures and released by the Pathé exchanges.
