From low-budget Mayfair Pictures Corp., this robust action-melodrama starred Larry "Buster" Crabbe as an oil prospector whose financial backer turns crooked when he suddenly finds himself faced with bankruptcy. Learning that Dave Warren (Crabbe) has been forced to fire a troublesome worker, Simmons (Max Wagner), the backer, J.T. Varley (George Irving), convinces the man to sabotage Dave's truck. Happily, Dave survives, but his girlfriend, Alice (Gloria Shea), Varley's niece, refuses to believe that her uncle is behind the scheme. Cornered by Dave, Varley confesses that he attempted to rob him and that he hired Simmons. The latter is apprehended just as Dave hits the mother lode.
