Produced by Willis Kent and directed by lanky actor-stunt-man Bartlett Carre, this film is perhaps the most obscure Western of the 1930s. The star, Buck Coburn, was a supporting player who usually billed himself as Rocky Camron or Gene Alsace, neither of which were apparently deemed heroic enough for a starring role. Coburn played a cowboy who, after obtaining the job of ranch hand, saves the rancher's pretty daughter (Marion Shilling) from an unscrupulous city attorney (Roger Williams). Quite a few Western veterans took part in this 57-minute-long fiasco, including Chief Thundercloud, Lloyd Ingraham, Philo McCullough, Lafe McKee, Bud Osborne, Nelson McDowell, Lew Meehans, and the Bucko brothers -- Buck and Roy. The film was ostensibly a Montie Montana production, Willis Kent having paid the rodeo star for the use of his name. Montana starred for Kent in Circle of Death, released later in the year.
