Description by

Rodeo ace Tom Duncan (Big Boy Williams), receives an urgent letter from his father asking him to come home. The elder Mr. Duncan, a wealthy ranch owner, is being stalked by a mysterious, hooded horseman. A few hours before Tom arrives at the Duncan ranch his father is found shot to death, the family dog has been poisoned, and two loyal ranch hands have disappeared.

While searching the ranch house for $50,000 in missing cash, Tom sees the masked stranger and chases after him only to be taken prisoner by the phantom's henchman. A daring escape allows Tom to observe strange clues inside his father's home that could lead him to the money and the true identity of his father's murderer.

Product Description:

Adding a dose of whodunit mystery to classic B-movie western fare, this Guinn "Big Boy" Williams vehicle is certainly unique. Reclusive rancher John Duncan (Charles K. French) is about to draw up his will, which includes directions to the $50,000 he's hidden somewhere in the vicinity, when a masked intruder breaks in and shoots him in the heart. Duncan's son Big Boy, who comes to town in response to an urgent summons his father issued just before his death, is faced with the task of finding the killer, and quickly undertakes to do so with the aid of his sidekick, Windy (Bud Osborne). There are many suspects, as old Duncan had many enemies, including his neighbor, his lawyer, and his foreman. The plot takes many twists and turns that more or less make sense, earning this film a reputation as a campy example of slack continuity editing.

The Forgotten Big Boy Movie Lover: from New York CIty, NY US -- May, 28, 2005

Guinn "Big Boy" Williams is remembered today (if at all) as a bit player in some Errol Flynn westerns, or a supporting player in some B-Westerns and serials. But Williams was a major star of silent westerns who had the lead in several B-Films of his own in the 1930's. Williams played a very different type of hero: not overly bright, incredibly good-natured and kind hearted, and powerfully strong. He also got very flustered around the ladies. His films, including this one, are great fun and excitement for the whole family. Big Boy really depicted the true cowboy of the old west.
