The first of Coronado Pictures' three "Singing Cowgirl" Westerns, Water Rustlers stars Dorothy Page as rancher Shirley Martin who goes on the offence when her suit against Robert Weylan (Stanley Price) is dismissed for a lack of witnesses. Weylan, who has dammed up the local Silver Creak for his own selfish purposes, is oblivious to the hardships suffered by the local ranchers and has been using threats of bodily harm to silence the opposition. With the law failing to protect them, Shirley and new foreman Bob Lawson (Dave O'Brien) have only one option left: to take matters into their own hands. In a rare quiet moment, Dorothy Page sings "I Feel at Home in the Saddle," "When a Cowboy Sings a Dogie Lullaby," and "Let's Go on Like This Forever," all with words and music by Al Sherman, Walter Kent, and Milton Drake.
