Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Man From Death Valley is steely-eyed western hero Tom Tyler. A mysterious figure in the opening scenes, Tyler rides out of the nowhere and into a dusty frontier town, there to renew his romance with an old sweetheart. Upon learning that the girl is engaged to the sheriff, Tyler is about to leave town when he overhears a plan to hold up the local bank. Our hero robs the bank himself to keep the money safe, but try telling that to the sheriff, who immediately throws Tyler in the slammer. With the help of his former sweetie, Tyler escapes from jail to track down the bandits -- whereupon he discovers that the sheriff himself is in cahoots with the crooks. Man From Death Valley was one of several mildly offbeat Tom Tyler westerns produced during the 1931-32 season by G. A. Durlam and Lloyd Nosler (who also directed).
