Synopsis by Janiss Garza

This standard programmer was based on the novel The Yellow Seal by W.C. Tuttle, and stars veteran Western star Harry Carey. When Ruth Delaney (Jean Dumas) is murdered, her brother, ranchman Brian Delaney (Carey), becomes a bandit to get revenge. He raids a gambling hall run by Howard Steele (Lloyd Whitlock) and helps Don Esteban (Robert Edeson) and his daughter, Teresa (Trilby Clark), to escape. Esteban is under Steele's control, and Teresa is being forced into a marriage with the gambling proprietor. Delaney stops the wedding, and, even though he is wounded, manages to carry Teresa away. Steele finds Delaney's hiding place, but he is overpowered and Delaney dresses him in his own clothes. A posse in pursuit of the bandit mistakes Steele for Delaney and kills him. Steele, it turns out, was Ruth's murderer, so Delaney gets his revenge. He and Teresa are now able to settle down to a much quieter life.
