Charles Starret is the Durango Kid, this time as local sheriff, appointed by his former Ranger buddy Jack Mahoney. Jock Mahoney, Smiley Burnette and Caroline Cotton co-star. Also, Pee Wee King and Tommy Ivo have small roles.

Jack Mahoney has a scheme to fleece the local miners and marry the saloon songbird. He enlists the Durango Kid, his former Ranger buddy to serve as local sheriff in order to control the miners and the local newspaper publisher. This deviates from earlier fare as it features several songs by Burnette, Cotton and Pee Wee King.

Well produced and directed. Many scenes shot at Iverson Ranch in the San Fernando Valley section of Los Angeles. The print is excellent as is the sound.

Western fans will enjoy.
