Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
FBO's popular boy rider Buzz Barton attempts to save the townspeople whose water supply is held hostage by a villain (Tom Lingham). Along with sidekick Milburn Morante, little Buzz manages to drive the villain into the desert where he, in danger of dying from thirst, willingly agrees to charge a fair price for his water. The Barton westerns were directed by Louis King, the less-talented but prolific brother of Henry King. Like Henry, Louis worked well into the 1950s, albeit in much lesser circumstances.
