Product Details

Honest cowpoke Ken Williams is gainfully employed on beautiful Lila Miller's dude ranch. Gangster Matt Chandler arrives from the East determined to win Lila's affections, but must first eliminate Ken as a romantic rival. Chandler and his gang steal his horse, and then finish the job by framing the luckless cowboy for murder. Ken must escape prison and the hangman's noose, if he is to save the girl he loves from being duped out of her ranch by the smooth-talking mobster. Ken Maynard headlines this Mascot production which is highlighted by the unheralded screen debut of singer Gene Autry and Smiley Burnette. Maynard found early success in a number of silent westerns, and made a smooth transition as the talkies gained prominence. Arguably the first singing cowboy on the silver screen, he performed with an unpolished and authentic style. Although beloved by fans, his difficult temperament made him a Hollywood hot potato, bouncing from contract to contract. Once one of the highest paid movie cowboys, Maynard ended his days virtually penniless and dependent on the care of his younger brother and fellow western star, Kermit Maynard.
