Cast & Crew
After Glen Wilson's rancher father is killed by a gang of rustlers led by Ramon Jennings, Glen becomes the sole support of his invalid mother. Unknown to Glen and his sweetheart, Jane Martin, Jane's father James is part of the gang because of a debt he owes to Jennings. Months after his father's death, Glen continues to court Jane, but Jennings is forcing her father to break up the relationship and arrange for him to marry Jane. Although Jane wants nothing to do with Jennings and has promised to marry Glen, her father forbids her to do so. Jennings orders his henchman, Pedro, to frame Glen for a crime, but later Jennings and Pedro fall out and Jennings strikes Pedro. Jane witnesses this and goes to Pedro's aid. During the town of Brandville's annual picnic and dance, Sheriff McHenry is forced to arrest Glen as he has found planted evidence of the crime in Glen's barn. When Jane pleads with her father to help Glen, he confesses his involvement with the rustlers. Just as James promises to tell the sheriff everything, Jennings arrives and attempts to strangle him. Jane seeks help from two of Jennings' men, but they refuse and ride off with her, unaware that Pedro has seen them. Because Jane helped him, Pedro goes to the jail, tells Glen what has happened and helps him overpower the deputy and escape. Glen then borrows a horse from the recovered James and chases Jennings and his men while James confesses to the sheriff. Jennings and his gang, now pursued not only by Glen, but also the sheriff and a posse, separate. Glen catches up with Jennings and after a long fistfight on a cliff top, Jennings falls to his death as the sheriff arrives to pull Glen to safety. Jane is trapped on a runaway horse, but Glen manages to stop it before it plunges over another cliff. Glen and Jane reunite and embrace.
