Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
The fifth of 18 inexpensive Tom Tyler oaters produced by Reliable Pictures, this film, like its predecessors, was filmed in Newhall, California, in 1934, but not widely distributed until February of the following year. Playing a sheriff caught in the middle of a range war, Tom arrests the rancher brother of his fiancée for killing a sheep herder. The young man, Ned Hampton (Edmund Cobb), escapes by shooting Tom in the shoulder, and the wounded sheriff seeks shelter with the leader of the sheep men, Jim Green (Lafe McKee). Molly (Virginia Brown Faire), Ned's sister, arrives to warn Tom of an impending stampede of cattle through sheep territory. She is held hostage by Green while Tom attempts to stop her father, John Hampton (Charles K. French), from stampeding his cattle. The attempt fails, and Tom arrives just in time to rescue Molly from the thundering herd.
