The presumed son of a Navajo Indian chief goes in search of the men who killed his father in this average serial produced by Columbia Pictures. The young man, Black Arrow, allies himself with pretty Adele Jergens in his search for the killers, a couple of evil carpetbaggers. In the 15th and final chapter, appropriately entitled "Black Arrow Triumphs," the young man not only catches the killers, but also, in the usually Hollywood cop-out, discovers that he is not a Navajo at all but the son of the white Indian agent. Observing a cherished serial tradition of elevating a bit-part player to stardom for economy purposes, producer Rudolph C. Flothow cast the completely unknown Robert Scott as Black Arrow. Scott later changed his name to Mark Roberts and starred as reporter Hildy Johnson in the 1949-1950 syndicated television series The Front Page.
