Western Justice (1934, B&W):
Three men on separate quests for justice take shelter from a howling windstorm in a deserted shack. Hiding their identities, they christen themselves "Ace," "Jack" and "King" during a game of cards. A friendship develops, and the men decide to pool resources and travel together. After six months on the trail, they ride into the small town of Red Ford, where an ongoing battle over water rights is about to boil over. A crooked businessman, John Brent, has secretly dammed streams to divert water away from the fields of local ranchers - all part of his plot to drive them out and seize their lands. By a twist of fate, Brent's Henchman, Clem Slade, just happens to be the very man that Ace, Jack and King are all searching for. Each of the three is determined to visit violent judgement on the bad men of Red Ford.

Near The Trail's End (1931, B&W): The lawless town of Cactus is little more than a cluster of saloons, gambling halls and seedy rooming houses, all controlled by a cruel, hard-drinking cattle rustler, Bart Morgan. In addition to ruling Cactus with an iron fist, Bart also keeps a very tight rein on beautiful café owner, Jane Rankin, by killing off all potential suitors and leaving their empty boots on Cemetery Hill. When the new marshal, Johnny Day, rides into town and takes an interest in Jane, he becomes Bart's next target. But double-crossing members of Bart's own gang turn his showdown with Johnny into a wild gun battle in the Cactus streets.
Starring Bob Steele, Si Jenks, Marion Shockley, Hooper Atchley; Directed by Wallace Fox.
