Nobody is what he (or she) appears to be in this above-average western starring Bob Steele and directed by his father, Robert North Bradbury. Searching for the whereabouts of a strongbox lost in a stage hold-up, government agent Jim Wilson (Steele) goes undercover as a prison inmate. The ploy works and with fellow agent June O'Day (Nancy DeShon), a "paroled" Jim is soon headed for the last location of the stage robbers. Impersonating Spike Manning, Jim learns that the leader of the gang is actually Blake (Charles King), a Wells Fargo agent operating under the alias of "Hashknife." Enter Muggs (Richard Cramer, a former prison inmate who knows Jim's true identity.
