Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Blonde, tough-looking Claire Rochelle played the main villain(ess) in this low-budget Western, an entry in PRC's "The Lone Rider" series starring former opera-singer George Houston. Houston and pal Al St. John come to the aid of their old friend Sheriff Smoky (Dennis Moore), who is having trouble with a power hungry cattle rancher, Huxley (Charles "Slim" Whitaker). The crooning "Lone Rider" and his sidekick go up against Huxley's powerful ally, bandit leader Nora Mason (Rochelle) and her chief lieutenant (Archie Hall), an outlaw disguised as a monk. Nora is a cattle rustler, a fact she hides from her friend, innocent Kate Stewart (Wanda McKay), whose brother (Karl Hackett) is killed by rancher Huxley. A necklace belonging to the wife of a notorious outlaw finally reveals Nora's real identity. The stalwart Houston, a graduate of the Juilliard School of Music, sang "Ride, Cowboy, Ride," "There's Only One Rose in Texas," and "We Will Meet in the Valley," all composed by Johnny Lange and Lew Porter.
