Storyline

After a cowardly raid on Dad Summers' freight-wagons, in which Summers is killed and his freight shipment burned, Tex Archer and his sidekick, "Duke" Evans, arrive on the scene in time to save Madge Summers from plunging over a cliff in one of the runaway wagons. Kalmus, a competitor of Summers, staged the raid to destroy Summers franchise,which calls for a daily trip over the wagon route. Kalmus orders his henchman, "Red" Holman, to get rid of Tex. When Holman attacks Tex, his own gun goes off during a clinch in the fight and he falls, apparently dead. Tex is charged with murder and jailed. Kalmus incites his gang to storm the jail and lynch Tex. Meanwhile, Duke has discovered that Holman is alive and well. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Tex Archer: Well...
Duke Evans: We're-we're looking for work. Done some entertainin' in our time and folks say not bad... I'm considered the best mandolin picker in Arizona and Tex here, he hits mighty few sour notes on the vocal chords.

Typical, But Hard To Dislike
10 November 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

Tex Ritter and Al St. John protect a female freight line operator from being put out of business by the villains who murdered her father in an attempt to gain control the price of goods and the means of supply.

Mostly typical, there's some good action scenes and music, including the terrific title song.

Tex is great, as usual and St. John is an animated and entertaining sidekick, showing off his credible fighting and riding skills, though not as glib as he became in many of his later pictures.

The most memorable scene of the picture is Tex's murder trial in a saloon courtroom with a bartender judge!
