Having eschewed music interludes in his previous Western effort, Gun Packer, Jack Randall returned to warbling a tune or two this time around. Accompanied by the Colorado Hillbillies, Randall sang "King of the Trail" by Eddie Cherkose and Charles Rosoff and "Cowboy Band" and "The West Was Meant for Me" by Connie Lee. In between all this warbling, Randall and company played out the standard B-Western story of a youngster who comes to the aid of a beleaguered rancher. The rancher was this time played by Herman Brix (later known as Bruce Bennett), who had played Tarzan back in 1935. Louise Stanley, soon to be Mrs. Jack Randall in real life, was Brix's sister and Randall's love interest, and Wheeler Oakman and John Merton took care of the skullduggery as a couple of greedy ranchers. The Land of Fighting Men was directed by one of the veterans of the genre, Alvin J. Neitz, this time using the pseudonym Alan James.
