The dashing Ken Maynard, who always warned that he sang loudly rather than well, finished his 1929-1930 stay at Universal with this average early sound western. Maynard sang several heart-felt prairie ballads in the film and even cut a record for Columbia. One of his songs, Down the Home Trail with You, became a minor hit, but the film itself, about a ranch foreman battling an outlaw gang was nothing to write home about despite a good performance by old-timer Francis Ford as the villain.
