Harry S. Webb
Tom, a fugitive with a price on his head, steps into a saloon and saves a young man from losing a payroll in a crooked card game, which has been engineered by the saloonkeeper. Tom next finds himself attending the trial of a young Mexican woman, who has been framed for murdering the town's leading citizen. The woman actually killed in self-defense, and Tom saves her from jail by abducting her from the street after she is convicted. Soon the woman and Tom fall in love. Tom then walks in on a gang as they plot to steal a shipment of gold. Believing that Tom is a fellow outlaw, the gang agrees to let him in on the robbery plot. Later, Tom finds the Mexican woman with the saloonkeeper and his cohort and concludes that she has betrayed him. After Tom leaves the saloon, the owner finds an identification card that reveals that the fugitive actually is a Wells Fargo express agent. The saloonkeeper joins forces with the outlaws, who seize the gold shipment. However, with the help of the sheriff and his men, who have been alerted by the Mexican woman, Tom reclaims the gold, routs the gang, and is happily reunited with his love.

J. P. Mcgowan
According to a June 1934 Hollywood Reporter news item, scenes for the film were shot in Newhall, CA. The same news item states that Al Greer, a "noted trick pistol shot," was injured during the location shooting. The exact nature of Greer's contribution to the production is not known. Although modern sources note that this film was the first of eighteen that Tom Tyler made with Bernard B. Ray and Harry S. Webb, contemporary sources suggest that at least two other Tom Tyler-Bernard B. Ray-Harry S. Webb titles, Tracy Rides and Ridin' Thru, were previously produced. Modern sources add Lew Meehan and Chuck Baldra (Henchmen) and Jimmie Aubrey (Cowboy) to the cast and list Harry S. Webb as associate producer. In addition, modern sources complete the above cast list with the following character names: Tom Tyler (Tom Hall), Renee Borden (Conchita Alvarez), Edward Hearn (Bart Hawley), Dick Botiller (Dick), Ralph Lewis (The judge), Murdock MacQuarrie (Prosecutor), Nelson McDowell (Bailiff), Tom London (Sheriff), George Chesebro (Deputy), Rosa Rosanova (The aunt) and J. P. McGowan (Morales). For more information on the Tom Tyler/Bernard B Ray series of westerns, see entry for Ridin' Thru (AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40; F3. 3757
