This Western -- the fourth starring Big Boy Williams -- had all the standard stuff, but director Charles R. Seeling (who created the films which helped raise Williams to stardom) added some excitement to the mix. Williams plays a cowboy who runs across a gang of desperadoes. But when he saves one of the bandits from disaster, they adopt him as one of their own, marking him with a green band around his forearm. When he gets back to the ranch, his girl (Patricia Palmer) believes he really is one of the gang and goes to tell the sheriff. But the gang captures her and takes her to a cabin located at the center of Four Corners. Williams fights the whole gang to rescue the girl, only to be arrested by the sheriff -- who turns out to be one of the gang. Then the girl's father reveals that he's working for the government, Williams' innocence is established and all ends well.
