Returning to its original format of incorporating music numbers into a Western setting, this otherwise below-par Jack Randall series entry featured former hillbilly singer turned supporting actor Glenn Strange joining Randall in a rendition of "Carol, Pride of the Valley" (composer unknown). The song was arguably the highlight of an all too commonplace B-Western about a cowboy buying himself a spread on the Mexican border only to discover that his property is used by a gang of smugglers. The leader of the smugglers, George Chesebro, is in cahoots with a crooked cattle dealer (Steve Clark) but their schemes are brought to a screeching halt by Jack and his sidekick, Manny (Strange). The latter apparently took over the role from an indisposed Frank Yaconelli, while Mrs. Randall, Louise Stanley, supplied the romantic interest as the aforementioned Carol. Jack Perrin, a star of silent Westerns, turned up in Land of the Six Guns as an unbilled henchman.
