Having already established Wally Wales as a viable western star, poverty row producer Lester F. Scott, Jr. launched yet another newcomer, Buddy Roosevelt (née Kenneth Stanhope Sanderson), in this average oater about a cowboy who is hit on the head with a bag of jewels dropped from an airplane! The careless traveller is pretty Helen Foster, whose father (J.C. Fowler) is a diamond importer. Suddenly in possession of what amounts to a minor fortune, Roosevelt is chased by any number of cutthroats, but, as always, fast riding and a way with a fist saves the day. Producer Scott's affinity for what he considered "catchy" monikers reached a ridiculous zenith with Roosevelt, presumably named in honor of former President (and admirer of all things western) Theodore Roosevelt.
