In his first Western of 1933, Columbia Pictures' Tim McCoy once again played a Texas Ranger, this time investigating the death of a supposed bank robber, "the Falcon." Tim and his buddy, Miguel (Julian Rivero), arrive at the Sherman ranch, whose owner (Lafe McKee) is the real victim of the robbery and is now about to lose his property. As it turns out, the robbery was staged by banker Frank Caldwell (Joseph W. Girard), who had advanced Sherman 10,000 dollars to pay his mortgage. Caldwell, meanwhile, is being blackmailed by evil Kit Masters (Stanley Blystone), who wants both the Sherman ranch and the rancher's pretty daughter, Irene (Caryl Lincoln). Although having to fight an unsympathetic sheriff (Wheeler Oakman) and his even more unscrupulous deputy (Ted Adams) all the way, Tim manages to save the Sherman ranch, force a confession out of meek bank teller Summers (Walter Brennan), and bring all the villains to justice. McCoy had great rapport with comic sidekick Julian Rivero (whose character answered to the imposing name Don Miguel y Guillermo Pablo Pancho Castrano de Villero), whom he always credited with teaching him the South-of-the Border accent he would employ in many of his future films.
