When gold shipments of the Hard Strike Goldmine are repeatedly robbed
despite the fact that only very few people know about the shipments, the
gouvernment sends their top agent, Kirk Baxter (Johnny Mack Brown) to
investigate ... which comes in quite handy because Carson (Ed Cassidy), the
(abusive) stepfather of Baxter's sweetheart Beth (Helen Ericson) runs the mine
together with Davis (Frank Ball), the honest part of the couple ... so you
might by now know who is behind the hold-ups, Baxetr however doesn't yet ...
only clues to the gangsters are silver bullets they use ... but why silver
bullets, & how do they know, out in Death Valley, when a shipment might
The gangsters, led by Gorman (Warner Richmond), have found a
silvermine out in Death Valley , & have enlslaved a few rpospectors passing
through there to operate the mine ... & the communications with Baxter -
who always has a perfect alibi when the shipments are robbed - are done by
Soon Beth falls into the hands of the gangsters in the mine,
while Baxter finally picks up a trace to the mine when he apprehends Wellford
(Eddie Parker), & he soon enters the mine posing as a gangster himself but
is of course soon found out & about to be forced to slave Labour too, when
one of the slaves (Earl Dwire) - by now half crazed from the work - wants to
blow the whole place up. Baxter can not only prevent that but also use the
commotion to overcome all the slaves' guards. But the bulk of the gangsters is
already out robing the next gold shipment, piloted by Carson himself.
can however reach the shipment before they do & set them a nice little trap
that of course involves one of these typical stagecoach stunts ...
ever so often with Robert N.Bradbury's films, there are quite a few unusual
touches incorporated into a clichéd Western story here, like the spooky sets
of the silver mine with its half dead slave workers., touches that make this
film one of the more interesting inside of the B-Western genre.
