Undercover lawman Jack Reed (Jack Perrin') and his two pals, Pedro Esteban (Chris-Pin Martin) and "Judge" (Nelson McDowell), after driving off a couple of stagecoach bandits, are thanked by Nora Hastings (Lillian Gilmore) for saving her life. She is en route to Rawhide to take over a saloon willed to her. When she is tricked by Hal Drummond (Richard Cramer) into selling her place for little money, Jack opens up an opposition place and steals Drummond's liquor supply. Drummond robs and kills the local express agent and frames Jack, who escapes and finds the hideout of Drummond's gang.

Did You Know?
This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-46. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. It's earliest documented telecasts took place in Boston Saturday 1 January 1949 on WBX (Channel 4), in Atlanta Saturday 5 March 1949 on WSB (Channel 8), in Cincinnati, where it was shown in 2 parts, Wednesday-Thursday 15-16 June 1949 on WKRC (Channel 11), in Chicago Tuesday 25 October 1949 on WGN (Channel 9), in Philadelphia Thursday 10 November 1949 on WFIL (Channel 6), in Los Angeles Tuesday 6 December 1949 on KTSL (Channel 2), and in New York City Wednesday 28 December 1949 on WPIX (Channel 11).
