Spoilers of the Range looks so much like the Charles Starrett westerns that preceded and followed it that only a close scrutiny would reveal the differences. Hero Jeff Strong (Starrett) comes to the rescue of a group of victimized ranchers. The villains are a gang of crooked gamblers, who demand a valuable dam as payment for a $50,000 debt. The ranchers hope to earn the money by getting their cattle to market on time, but head bad guy Cash Fenton (Kenneth MacDonald) and his flunkey Lobo (Dick Curtis) intend to prevent this. Complicating matters for our hero is the animosity of heroine Madge Patterson (Iris Meredith), who thinks that Jeff is in league with the crooks. The members of the Starrett stock company-Curtis, Meredith, Edward LeSaint and the Sons of the Pioneers-go through their customary paces with their customary efficiency.
