Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Charles Starrett is once more cast as frontier doctor Steve Monroe in Columbia's Prairie Stranger. In the company of his comic sidekick, mail-order intern Bones (Cliff Edwards), Dr. Monroe sets up his shingle in a small Nevada town. When business is slow, Monroe and Bones take jobs as ranch-hands on a cattle spread, and while thus employed try to solve a series of mysterious livestock poisonings. Rather disappointingly, the much-awaited action climax is dispense with in a throwaway scene. Prairie Stranger was the third and final entry in the "Dr. Steven Monroe" western series, which came to an end due to contractual difference between Columbia and series creator James L. Rubel.
