College mineralologist Bob (Richard Dix) decides to put his education to good use by prospecting for gold out West. Teaming with desert rat Solitaire (Andy Clyde), Bob strikes it rich, but while en route to town to stake their claim, he stops long enough to rescue Nellie (Leila Hyams) from a gang of stagecoach robbers. Alas, in the meantime villainous Hanway (Onslow Stevens) has jumped our hero's claim. The rest of the picture concerns Dix's efforts to get back his gold, a dilemma solved in the traditional climactic gunfight. Surprisingly threadbare for a Richard Dix vehicle, Yellow Dust is one of the few RKO Radio westerns that really looks like a "B" picture.
