When Pidge learns that the girl, Doris Lane (Mary Brian), he is chasing has a do-gooder heart and is fond of coddling prisoners in the jail ran by her uncle, Sheriff George Lane (William B. Davidson), he gets himself thrown into jail. The plan is working good until big-city gangster Sluggsy Baker (Marc Lawrence) is also jailed, and sends for his moll Gert (Iris Adrian), who he calls "Ma", to bring his henchmen and break him out. They also take along the unwilling Pidge. The horse stampede through town,wrangled by the likes of Bob Woodward and Kermit Maynard, is one of the better stagings of the genre, and even has a horse end up in the back seat of a convertible driven by Eddie Hall.
