Storyline

Steve Randall heads a group of Mesa Valley ranchers fighting Matt Conroy , who owns the water company and charges exorbitant rates that the ranchers can not afford. Senator Proctor and his secretary, Mona Grant, come from the capitol to inform Randall that a bill is pending to convert Conway's company to a municipal project. Conway imports the Senator's black-sheep look-alike brother, Sheppard Proctor, kills the senator and arranges with Mona, who is in league with him, to have Sheppard pose as his brother. The impostor then proceeds to fight against the bill at the capitol. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Pre-Durango Starrett Rides.
28 November 2005 | by horn-5See all my reviews

Steve Randall (Charles Starrett) heads a group of Mesa Valley ranchers fighting Matt Conroy (Ian Keith), who owns the water company and charges exorbitant rates that the ranchers can not afford. Senator Proctor (Kenneth MacDonald) and his secretary, Mona Grant (Vi Athens), come from the capitol to inform Randall that a bill is pending to convert Conway's company to a municipal project. Conway imports the Senator's black-sheep look-alike brother, Sheppard Proctor (also Kenneth MacDonald), kills the senator and arranges with Mona, who is in league with him, to have Sheppard pose as his brother. The impostor then proceeds to fight against the bill at the capitol.

A typical modern-west-mixed-with-the-old-west formula that Columbia was using mostly in the 1943-44 series with Starrett, with Dub Taylor along in his usual "good gracious sakes alive" mode, and Jimmy Wakely and his Saddle Pals backing up singer Ozie Waters. In just a few months, Wakely would be starring in his own western series at Monogram, and Starrett would soon begin his Durango Kid series that would last until 1952.
