Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Johnny Mack Brown stars as Dusty Gardner, spokesmen for a group of hard-working cattlemen. As Gardner and his compatriots guide their livestock down the titular trail, the villains try to make certain that the cattle will never reach the market. Heading the bad guys is a bad girl, one Belle Turner (Mady Correll). She intends to cut off the cattle's water supply, then move in and hijack the thirsty bovines. But Dusty and his saddle pal Montana Smith (Tex Ritter) ain't a-gonna let that happen. The Old Chisholm Trail was one of the last Johnny Mack Brown vehicles for Universal.
