Filmed in the majestic high desert country near Lone Pine, California, this early sound Western starred Hoot Gibson as a rodeo cowboy hunting down the villain who killed the brother of young Buddy Hunter. Along with sidekick Pee Wee Holmes, Gibson infiltrates the notorious Pecos gang to get close to the killer, Indian Joe (Pete Morrison). As it turns out, Indian Joe is in the employ of nasty Philo McCullough, who kidnaps both Holmes and young Hunter. There's a rodeo to lighten up the dour proceedings (which Gibson of course wins) and a final ride to the rescue. According to reviewers, both leading lady Helen Wright and McCullough had a hard time emoting in front of the dreaded microphone.
