Storyline

Six-year-old Sugar Grey (Sugar Dawn) has inherited a ranch, which she will lose to her cousin Jeff Grey (Carleton Young) if a certain number of cattle aren't delivered on time. Jeff has been working with Vic Insley (Glenn Strange) to steal Sugar's cattle so he can obtain the ranch. Banker Jim Coleman (Hal Price), ranch overseer against Jeff's wishes, hires Tex Wright (Tex Ritter) and Slim Hunkafeller (Slim Andrews)) as cowhands on Sugar's ranch. Tex and Slim work nights changing Insley's brand on the rustled cattle from Sugar's herd to yet another brand. Tex then bribes the rustlers to help him herd the cattle to the loading pens. Jeff convinces the Sheriff (Warner Richmond) that Tex is a rustler. Tex eludes the posse and Slim and his men surround the rustlers. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
