Don "Red" Barry may be the star of The Tulsa Kid, but the film's acting honors are won with nary a struggle by that shameless old barnstormer Noah Beery Sr. A protegee of notorious outlaw Montana (Beery), young Tom Benton decides to stay on the good side of the Law upon reaching maturity. Montana, however, has no such inclination to reform, the result being a climactic gun duel between the ageing gunman and his former pupil. In addition, Tom finds time to solve the financial woes of brother-and-sister farmers Bob and Mary Wallace (David Durand, Luana Walters). Musical relief is provided by Jimmy Wakely's Roughriders.
