Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
The third of Poverty Row producer Willis Kent's eight Lane Chandler Westerns, Battling Buckaroo was filmed on-location at the Hearst ranch in Lone Pine, CA. Chandler played Blackjack, a notorious outlaw who nevertheless helps Tonya Mendoza (Doris Hill) and her prospector father (Lafe McKee) escape a gang of outlaws lead by nasty Duke Lawson (Ted Adams). Arrested by Sheriff Jones (Yakima Canutt), Blackjack makes his escape with the assistance of Tonya, who has fallen in love with the bandit. Blackjack, however, is quickly caught by Duke's men but is once again rescued, this time by his faithful steed Raven. After a furious chase, Blackjack and Raven lose their pursuers and manage to arrive at the Mendoza gold mine in time to save Tonya and her father from Duke. About to be arrested once again by Sheriff Jones, Blackjack reveals himself to be an undercover United States marshal. Director Armand Schaefer later formed a close association with singing cowboy star Gene Autry and would head Autry's television company.
