Starting out with newsreel footage of the Chicago Stockyards fire, this standard Buck Jones picture moves quickly to Arizona where Jones gets involved in a land battle, aided by gruffly humorous Fields, a sometimes criminal. Miller played the moneygrubbing outlaw to Terry's young and
innocent landowner. This was the first of 22 films Jones made, along with four serials, for Universal, where he reigned as top cowboy around the Hollywood lots until the singing gunslingers (Gene Autry and Roy Rogers, especially) came on the scene. In ROCKY RHODES, it is curious that Jones still
bills himself Charles "Buck" Jones, a label the kids never bought.
