Young Dave Crockett and his sidekick Cannonball find themselves on the trail of water-hole poisoners in the territory known as The Yucca Strip which, through a surveying error, is neither part of the United States nor Indian Territory. King Canfield, self-appointed ruler of the strip, is determined to see that the residents can't vote themselves into the Union through an honest election. Crockett and Cannonball side with the ranchers and townspeople against Canfield and his legion of henchmen to establish the strip as part of Texas.Accuracy footnote: Gail Pictures, Inc. had no connection at all to the production of this film (as shown on site), as Gail Pictures was a TV distributor only. Columbia produced and distributed it to theaters, and Gail had it for television, while Astor pictures had it for re-issue showings after WW II. Written by Les Adams See less
