Description by OLDIES.com:

Betty Castelar is the heiress to a hundred thousand acres of southern Arizona range known as El Rio Rancho. She is about to lose her land in a public auction when the Supreme Court validates her right of possession by formally recognizing the family's old Spanish land grant. Unfortunately, the Court's letter to Betty is snatched from ambushed Pony Express rider Buck Carson by cattleman Clem Porter, who covets El Rio Rancho for himself. Left to die in the desert, Buck survives his ordeal and vows to recover the stolen document - but the auction looms and Clem is determined to be the highest bidder by fair means or foul.

Jack Hoxie was a prominent silent-era cowboy star nearing the end of his career when he made this low-budget Western in 1932. Via Pony Express, one of Jack's better talkies, benefits from good location shooting and the presence of fellow cowboy hero Lane Chandler in a prominent supporting role as Buck Carson's brother.

Product Description:

Former silent screen cowboy star Jack Hoxie played a Pony Express rider in this, the fourth of six low-budget oaters produced by Majestic. Delivering a valuable deed to El Rio Rancho, Buck Carson (Hoxie) is ambushed by Clem Porter (Matthew Betz) and his gang, who steal the deed. Meanwhile, at El Rio Rancho, Betty Castlear (Marceline Day) releases her horse, Dynamite, into the desert. The animal has been conscripted to the cavalry by Lt. Bob Gray (Lane Chandler), Betty's fiancée. Bringing the wayward horse back to the ranch, Carson stumbles over Porter, who forces him to go to the gang's hangout at the Bar X Ranch. With the aid of sidekick Pancho Gonzales (Julian Rivero), Carson manages to recover the deed, after which he sets the ranch on fire. In retribution, Porter holds Betty and her friend June (Doris Hill) hostage at El Rio Rancho, but they are eventually saved by Carson, Lt. Gray, and the cavalry.
