The Man From Sundown is cut from the same cloth as all previous Charles Starrett westerns. The hero, Texas Ranger Larry Whalen (Charles Starrett), is on the trail of a mysterious outlaw leader. It helps not at all that the villain has a habit of killing anyone who discerns his true identity, even his most faithful lieutenants. The mystery angle is pepped up somewhat by a traditional barroom brawl, with Charles Starrett having yet another go with Columbia's top stuntmen (his usual sparring partner Dick Curtis is strangely absent). Iris Meredith is back at her usual stand as the imperiled heroine.
