While robbing the stage with Jeff Johnson (Tommy Farrell), outlaws Jordan (Terry Frost) and Wilkins (Zon Murray) kill the stage guard and leave Jeff unconscious on the trail, to be picked up by pursuing U.S. Marshals Tom Yeager (Whip Wilson) and "Hungry" Rogers ('Andy Clyde'0. Posing as an outlaw, Tom is put in the same cell with Jeff, and, with Hungry's help, stages a jailbreak and takes Jeff with him on the latter's promise to lead him to an outlaw gang head by the supposedly-dead Bill Moore (Stanley Price). They find the gang led by Anne Moore (Phyllis Coates), who passes on the instructions of her infamous father. Wilkins, after an unsuccessful attempt to ambush Tom, is taken to jail where the gabby sheriff informs him of the two marshal's true identities. Tom and Anne take the loot from a staged-bank robbery to Moore, where Tom arrests him and Anne and declares that Moore is an impostor. Meanwhile, Jordan visits Wilkins in jail and learns about Tom being a lawman, and sets a trap...Written by

Not a bad movie but it needs more action in places
Whip Wilson (with neckerchief & white horse) as Tom Yeager, & Andy Clyde as Hungry, pose as bad guys to infiltrate the gang run by Phyllis Coates. Andy is two years removed from his last role as California in the Hopalong Cassidy series, & Phyllis has a couple of years to go before she becomes the first Lois Lane in the Superman TV series, & those two are the best actors in this movie. Although very similar in mannerisms, Andy's character here is not quite as silly as his California character in the Hoppy series, & here he actually shoots someone. On the plus side, it's not a bad movie, & it's a bit more realistic than some of the Lash LaRue movies (to compare another whip carrying good guy), & it has no music. However, it needs more action in places, there's one major credibility lapse, & the Whip Wilson fight scenes are poorly done.
