Don "Red" Barry's first western of 1941, Wyoming Wildcat told the careworn but still potent story of a war veteran returning home to find that his father is now a wanted outlaw. But as Frank Gannon (Frank M. Thomas explains, circumstances -- in this case severe economic conditions forced upon the settlers by local banks -- drove him into a life of crime. Trying to prove his father innocent of killing a local bank manager, Bill Gannon (Barry) is himself falsely accused of murder. Sprung from jail by his faithful army buddy Butch (Syd Saylor), Bill tracks down the real culprit, outlaw Blackie Jordan (Dick Botiller), but in the ensuing shoot-out, Frank is mortally wounded. Before he dies, however, Gannon clears his son of any wrong-doings and Bill is free to marry pretty Wells Fargo employee Derry Carson (Julie Duncan). The blond Miss Duncan, who also appeared in the previous Don "Red" Barry entry, Texas Terrors (1940), was a prize-winning steeplechase rider.
