During the time this film was made, cowboy star Maynard was intent on becoming a singer and incorporating that skill into his film career. He even signed a recording contract with Columbia Records. Universal, however, was less enthusiastic and dropped Maynard's B-western series when they

discovered that the enormous expense of sound recording made their series films in general uprofitable. They quickly closed their series department, and Maynard moved to the smaller Tiffany Studios. This film is the last one in Maynard's Universal series and does contain a couple of songs by the

hopeful cowboy singer. Maynard plays the foreman of a ranch who is the object of affection of the boss's daughter, though Maynard's friend is in love with her. Trouble mounts when the ranch owner runs afoul of Ford and his outlaw gang. Maynard and his pal team up against Ford. SONS OF THE SADDLE

also marks the split between Maynard and long-time friend and producer Harry Joe Brown, who moved to RKO.
