Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Diminutive screen cowboy Bob Steele starred in his pleasant oater about a cowboy searching for his mysteriously vanished father.Trailing three oldtimers into the desert, Bob Saunders (Steele) discovers his father, Silent (Buck Connors) in the hands of nasty Big Olaf (Robert Fleming). When Big Olaf learns that Bob is Silent's son, Bob is tortured in the hope that Silent will spill the beans about a hidden treasure. Bob manages to free himself, however, and instead fights one of Big Olaf's men. He wins and Big Olaf's gang of outlaws turn on their leader. This fairly well-mounted Western was directed by Steele's real-life father, Robert N. Bradbury.
