A punch drunk prize-fighter, Wildcat Saunders (Jack Perrin) travels to a western ranch for a little rest and relaxation with his cigar-chomping promoter Joe Pitts (William Gould) and black sparring partner Fred "Snowflake" Toones. The ranch foreman, Hawkins (Tom London) is actually a fugitive from justice who has robbed the local Wells Fargo office of rubies and diamonds worth $100,000. Wildcat and company discover the truth, and the former uses his dexterity from the ring to bring the outlaw to justice. Produced by William A. Berke for Poverty Row company Atlantic Pictures Corp. -- and the first in a series of four Perrin Westerns -- Wildcat Saunders was a remake one of director Harry Fraser's first feature westerns, The Wildcat (1926). The original Saunders was played by the wiry Gordon Clifford, a rather more appropriate choice than the slightly overweight and aged Jack Perrin of the remake.
