Produced by cameraman Burton King for ill-named Poverty Row company Big 4 Film Corp., this western starred laconic silent screen cowboy Bob Custer in the title role. Quick Trigger is on his way to help a beleaguered old prospector who, because of bad eyesight, has signed a crooked I.O.U. The nasty Waleses, father and son (Monte Montague and Leander de Cordova), are waiting to ambush him when they are all interrupted by a movie crew filming a Western. Quick Trigger manages to romance the company's leading lady (Caryl Lincoln), while at the same time defeating the nasty Wales gang, who are soon enough carted off to jail. The movie actress turns out to be the old prospector's long-lost niece, and she's more than ready to leave her glamorous life for marriage to a handsome cowboy like Quick Trigger Lee. Offscreen, Caryl Lincoln was married to actor Byron Stevens and thus the sister-in-law of Barbara Stanwyck.
