Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Western Heritage was Tim Holt's first western vehicle for the 1947-48 season, discounting his previous appearances in RKO Radio's "Zane Grey" series. Together with his new saddle pal Chito Rafferty (Richard Martin), Holt mediates a feud between ranchers and land barons. The villains use a forged land grant as an excuse to plunder and pillage, but our hero puts a stop to all that. Nan Leslie makes her third co-starring appearance opposite Tim Holt, while former RKO cowboy star Richard Powers (aka Tom Keene) shows up as one of the bad guys. Also featured in the cast as a saloon singer is Lois Andrews, the highly publicized "child bride" of comedian Georgie Jessel.
