This is the eighth movie in the "Lone Rider" series, which spans seventeen films—eleven starring George Houston, and a further six starring Robert Livingston.[3]


Smoky Moore is riding to Cheyenne to see his stepfather Bill Hastings, whom he has not seen in fifteen years. His father is the town sheriff. Smoky witnesses Dan Blodgett, the town's mayor and Mort Saunders, head of the Cattleman's Association, robbing the bank at night. During the robbery, a guard is killed, and Smoky somehow winds up getting arrested for both the robbery and the murder! Tom Cameron (The Lone Rider) and his faithful sidekick Fuzzy Jones break their pal Smoky out of the prison, and weeks later, the three of them sneak back into town disguised, and attempt to expose the so-called good upstanding citizens who were really responsible for the crimes.
