This is one of John Wayne's many low budget B-movie westerns. It's a very quiet movie. Almost a silent film with only a little background noise and very few lines of dialog. Just enough talking to move the story along. It's a proto-type of the Lone Ranger shows. The hero rides a white horse and has an Indian side-kick. He's on a secret mission to find the identity of the leader of an outlaw gang. Although it's set in the old west with horses, stagecoaches, wagons and a canoe the only female character wears 1920's era clothes and the bad guys have a World War I machine gun. Most of the movie is just people riding around on horses. When John Wayne goes into a secret tunnel at night he has a flashlight. I don't think they had flashlights in the old west. Then at the end of the movie after they catch the bad guy they jump 5 years into the future and John Wayne and the female lead are married with a little boy.
