Rancher Tim Clark loses his ranch to cattle baron Robert Russell due to money Clark borrowed from Russell. Shortly after taking the loan, Clark’s cattle were stolen, and Clark suspects Russell but is unable to prove it. Clark leaves the town of Eagle Pass and the woman he loves, Betty Owen, heading into the mountains to look for silver. In the two years that he is away, Russell continues his unscrupulous dealings, trying to acquire Betty Owen's ranch by commanding her to marry him. Clark has been wounded by a gunshot from one or Russell's henchmen and arrives at Betty's ranch in time to chase Russell off. Later, as Clark heads into town to put up the money to save Betty's ranch, the Wells Fargo office is robbed and its agent killed. Russell points the sheriff toward Clark, who is innocent. Clark barely escapes being arrested for a crime he did not commit. Can Clark save Betty's ranch from the fate that befell his own years ago? Can Clark finally make Russell pay for his years of dirty dealings?
John Wayne would later go on to remake many of Tim McCoy's films throughout the thirties.
After World War II, in 1946, Tim McCoy married Hollywood script writer Inga Arvad. Inga had the dubious distinction of being Hitler's guest at the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.
