Laconic silent screen cowboy Bob Custer starred in this cheap Syndicate Film Exchange early sound Western as a wrangler falsely accused of collaborating with Mexican revolutionists. Joan Prescott (Natalie Kingston) contracts to sell her horses to the Army in general and Captain Hartford (Tom London) in particular. In cahoots with a crooked secret service agent, Hartford plans to steal the horses, blaming wrangler Tom Rankin (Custer), who he accuses of conspiring with Mexican revolutionaries. Recovering the stolen horses, Rankin reveals that he is the real Captain Hartford, and the impostor is shipped off to prison. Both Custer and Bill Cody had seen better days in the silent era and would spend the remainder of their career in very low-budget independent Westerns such as Under Texas Skies.
