Dennis O'Keefe and Victor Jory are a couple of oilmen working a field somewhere south of the border. O'Keefe sets off a charge to start the well he's in charge of flowing; it starts Jory's well, which earns him a big bonus. While they're in town celebrating, singer Claire Carleton spots the bankroll and gets her hands on it, but she returns O'Keefe watch.
However, when O'Keefe gets in a brawl, one of his pals gets killed. O'Keefe's fired and blacklisted. He takes a job running guns.
This Republic picture starts out like one of those two-oilman-and-a-shady-lady movies that was a staple of the movies, but it soon bites its own tail and starts heading off in different directions. Director Lew Landers doesn't break much new ground, but working off a good script by Malcolm Boylan and Karl Brown, he gets some nice performances out of his leads and supports, including Jay Novello and Steffi Dunn.
