The ubiquitous Robert North Bradbury directed this low-budget Bob Custer Western, with his trademark "swish-pan" technique very much in evidence. Custer plays Bob Brent, a sheriff's deputy suspecting that his future father-in-law, Dan Farrell (J.P. McGowan), may actually be the notorious "Polka-Dot" bandit. He isn't, of course, a fact that becomes increasingly clear after the arrival of one Buck Brokaw (Edward Hearn) and his female accomplice Roxie (Eve Humes). Slowing the already lethargic pace even further, saloon girl Jane Crowley performs an especially woeful rendition of Paul Dresser's famous "On the Banks of the Wabash." Watch for future Western sidekick Al St. John as a barfly.
