Publicized as "A Red-Hot Romance of the Western Plains," this above-average Buck Jones oater features the rootin' tootin' star as Tex Hartwel, a cowboy who saves an old cobbler from being abused by a nasty banker (Carl Stockdale). The banker does not take kindly to Hartwell's interfering and orders his henchman to kill the upstart. Hartwell, alas, is the fastest gun in the territory and gets out of the scrap alive and kicking. He takes a job with rancher Winch (Jack McDonald), who's having trouble with a gang of rustlers headed by -- you guessed it -- the nefarious banker. Future MGM stalwart W.S."Woody" Van Dyke established himself as a first-class action director with this and other Jones oaters.
