Synopsis

Sandy McTavish is shot from ambush on his Oklahoma ranch and dies in the arms of his son, Ken, after showing him a letter of warning and muttering the words "Kettle Creek--Kentucky." Ken goes there in search of the murderer, posing as deaf in the hope that handwriting will disclose the author of the letter. He becomes involved in a feud between the McTavishes and the Harlands and incidentally meets Coral Harland. His pose is detected; but a note from Coral discloses that she wrote the letter to his father. After fighting against terrific odds, Ken brings the murderer to justice and wins Coral for his bride.
