Morgan (Frank Shannon) pays off Randy (Smith Ballew) and Barry (Stanley Fields) with a promissory note to be collected at the Blake ranch. They arrive to find Mrs. Blake (Ruth Robinson) sick and without any money, her back taxes due, her ranch hands departed, and her son in need of an operation. With Randy attracted to Janet (Cecilia Parker) and Barry hoping to help Danny (Wally Albright), the two decide to stay.

Smith Baillew (?), Singing Cowboy Gets Girl
A rather tepid, feel good western with a typical by-the-numbers plot. Its only 54 minutes long, but lots of time gets taken up by Smith Ballew's so-so tenor vocals - like Ballew's character here, they're straightforward, earnest and rather uninteresting. Cecilia Parker makes an attractive love interest. Stanley Fields is the faithful and, for a change, capable sidekick who'd rather be in Chicago. The villains are just oily enough and nasty enough to hiss at. Not required viewing.
