Fed up with his life as a movie cowboy, Starrett (with sidekick Jenks) leaves Hollywood and travels to Arizona, where he denies that he is a movie star, though young Albright recognizes him. He buys a ranch and begins a romance with Meredith (who would go on to play opposite Starrett 20

more times). Albright is kidnaped by bandits hiding out in a ghost town, and Starrett teams up with sheriff Peil to rout the bad guys after a fight involving machine guns and fists. This fair B western is one of Starrett's earlier efforts. He would continue playing western heroes, including the

Durango Kid, for another 16 years.
