Truly made to order, The Singing Buckaroo starred former San Francisco Opera baritone Fred Scott in his second of thirteen singing Westerns for poverty row company Spectrum. In between warbling Johnny Lange and Fred Stryker's Cobweb 'Round My Saddle, Frankly Speaking and I'm a Wild Westerner, ranch owner Scott saves pretty Victoria Winton from a couple of pursuers attempting to steal the $25,000 she carries in her purse. Sam Gifford (Roger Williams), the owner of a corporation, turns up and claims Miss Winton stole the money from him. In reality, the girl and her father (William Faversham) where attempting to hide the money from the unscrupulous Gifford, intending to hand it over to the company's stockholders. With the assistance of an Indian friend (Augie Gomez), Scott not only delivers the stolen money to the rightful owners but saves Miss Winton's father from a gang of kidnappers along the way. As in the previous Scott-Spectrum Western, the comedy relief was provided by double-talk expert Cliff Nazarro. Nazarro left the series after The Singing Buckaroo, to be replaced with Al St. John (for seven entries) and Harry Harvey. A rare visitor to B-Westerns, supporting actor William Faversham had been a major star of the Victorian stage,
