A short, lightning-paced oater in which Lane takes over the sheriff's position from his murdered father, determined to get the men responsible for the killing. Sure enough it's Holt (in an unusual role as a villain), the pillar of the community, who's to blame and who is secretly heading
an outlaw gang. Lane beats the man senseless and by doing so restores law and order to the town. The first of Lane's films in which he used his own name for his character, marking the demise of the RED RYDER series.
