Boris Karloff's appearance as an outlaw gives this minor Tiffany western its only claim to fame. Rex Lease, a general utility actor whom the studio mistakenly saw as a possible western star, played the lead, an outlaw who reforms after marrying a nice schoolteacher (Dorothy Sebastian). Lease's bandit nobly marries the girl to protect her from his gang but quickly grows to love her. The local sheriff (Walter Miller), once the girl's suitor, is so moved by this strange turn of events that he willingly turns a blind eye to Lease's past.
