Clint Turner is arrested for the murder of his girlfriend Judy's father, a rival rancher who was an enemy of his own father, and his best friend, Sheriff Buck Gordon sets out to find the real killer in the face of pressure for a quick lynching of Clint.
I quite enjoyed this entertaining outing for the Duke. Here he ("Clint") is accused of murdering the father of his girlfriend "Judy" (Susan Fleming) after he is rather publicly barred from their ranch. Arrested by his sheriff pal - and the top billed - Buck Jones ("Buck" - indeed, why complicate matters?) both must work to track down the true culprit before our fresh faced cowboy goes for a long drop with a short rope... Of course we know what's going to happen, but so what? It's still a quickly paced episode that features plenty of action and the small cast keep the story tight and focused. Not the best of the star's B features, but still a watchable adventure for an hour.
