Eddie Dean and his pal Soapy Jones (Roscoe Ates) are assigned by the U.S. marshal to safeguard the invaluable Mexican Lopez diamond, which Don Lopez (Harry Vejar) insists on displaying on a worthy lady at every festive occasion. Due to a drought, the don and his neighbors are planning to move westward but the gold set aside for the trek is stolen and one of the hands killed by a couple of Chicago gangsters, Barrett (Gregg Barton) and Cory (Jimmy Martin), who are in cahoots with the local cantina proprietor, Avery (Zon Murray). Eddie and Soapy get their hands full not only safeguarding the diamond and tracking down the killers but must also contend with a mysterious Senorita, Maria (Dolores Castle), who may or may not be in league with Barrett. Backed by The Sunshine Boys, Dean takes time out to warble his own and Hal Blair's "Cry, Cry, Cry" and "West to Glory" and Pete Gates' "In the Shadow of the Mission".
