Scully has forced Joe Collins who works on the Garcia ranch to give him information so his men can steal the family jewels. But the Rough Riders are on the job. Buck poses as a wanted outlaw to get into the gang, Tim as a cattle buyer, and Sandy is collecting information as the saloon janitor. As usual they pretend not to know each other.Written by

Even though there were three people inside the stage during the chase by the robbers, it is obvious when the camera shows the stagecoach that there is no one in the riding compartment of the stage. See more »

In another film in their great western series, Buck Jones, Colonel Tim McCoy and Ray Hatton go undercover to solve a jewelry theft along the Mexican border. They each work covertly to rein in the dastardly thieves and restore order to the area.
Western film trios were popular during this era of film and this pairing was one of the best. Buck Jones and Tim McCoy were tough but personable on screen and ray Hatton was one of the best western character actors ever.
This film was above average, with good action, plot and casting. This one compares favorably with many of the better films of that other cowboy trio, the Three Mesquiteers. Enjoy !
