Charles Starrett spent more than a decade on the lists of the Top Ten Cowboy Stars -- a sure source of income for Columbia Pictures -- and the production values of this movie are some of the reasons why. Ford Beebe's script -- a reworking of 1935's THE REVENGE RIDER -- is a strong story with many threads. Starrett returns home, able to buy the ranch and marry pretty Iris Meredith, but first he has to deal with the cattle rustlers who are using the ranch to hide their stolen chattel.

Cinematographer George Meehan favors strong shots, shifting nicely between two-shots, three-shots and group portraits, to handsome effect. Add in the Sons of the Pioneers, who sing whenever they are going somewhere on horseback and you have a solid Western that belies its tiny B budget.
