Scott portrays western legend Bat Masterson, notoriously fast with his guns. He is called into Liberal, Kansas, where the bad guys have the run of the town and are trying to get rid of the law-abiding farmers. With the ranchers-against-farmers battle raging, Scott helps out land agent
Ryan. Hayes adds the comedic touch with tall tales of Texas grasshoppers and other bits and the like. A box-office success, the film brought in a profit of $365,000.
