Producer Morris R. Schlank was the purveyor of scores of low-budget westerns starring the likes of Jack Perrin, Al Hoxie, and Cliff Lyons. Perrin and Pauline Curley headed the cast in this instance, he saving her from Al Ferguson, a nefarious money lender threatening to take over the family ranch. Child actor Billy Lamar (later known as Buzz Barton) gets in the way of things quite a bit, but Perrin and his magnificent horse Starlight solve every problem. The comedy is supplied by diminutive Bud Duncan, who in the years 1914 to 1917 had enjoyed a fruitful partnership with the towering Lloyd Hamilton. Duncan attempted to recreate the feel of the "Ham and Bud" comedies in this western, substituting Hamilton with actor William Hayes. The attempt was not repeated.
