A fairly standard western plot, later reprised in urban settings in films such as the "Dirty Harry" series. Lawman Steele becomes disgusted with the system when he finds that the outlaws he arrests are being freed by a lax court system. In frustration, he throws his badge aside and takes

the law into his own hands. This was one of the last of the Hackel-Steele collaborations, which had brought the diminutive actor to the apogee of his popularity. It featured Dwire, Adams, and Stewart, who appeared in so many of Steele's successes, and was directed by Steele's father, Bradbury (one

of only two Hackel productions released by Republic that Bradbury directed). With the gradual ascendance of the singing cowboy--Republic had already signed the actor who was to be its greatest asset, Gene Autry--Steele's career declined following this series, although he attempted to adapt by

doing a bit of painfully tuneless crooning.
