Silent screen cowboy star Fred Thomson plays a drifter arrested for vagrancy in this above-average oater from FBO. On his way to jail, Thomson gets a chance to show his prowess in a local rodeo and proves to be such a success that he's hired on the spot by a local rancher. Unfortunately, Thomson's unknown past makes him a perfect suspect in a Wells Fargo robbery, and the stalwart hero must use all his cunning to unmask the real culprit, the crooked ranch foreman. This fine Thomson Western was the first of five directed by former actor David Kirkland. Kirkland replaced Del Andrews, who found himself demoted to the less prestigious Bob Custer series, reportedly because of drunkenness. The villainous ranch foreman was played, surprisingly enough, by Elmo Lincoln, a brawny actor best remembered as the screen's first Tarzan.
