Bob Harding (Bob Steele) & professor Goodrich are searching for a hidden valley somewhere in the Rockies & the professor has a map from a Spanish Conquistador to prove its existence. But before you know it he is shot, the map stolen & Bob arrested for the murder. & despite his best efforts to prove his innocence, he is also convicte for the crime, sentenced to death, with only Joyce (Gertie Messenger), who is in love with him, & her brother Jimmy (Ray Hallor), who is in cahoots with the actual killer Frank Gavin (Francis MacDonald) believing in his innocence. Desperate to save his own life, Bob takes a dive out of a window of the courtroom & heads for the Rockies - for the only reason to prove his innocence seems to be to find the Hidden Valley. At the same time Frank & his henchmen, including jimmy, decide to head for the Hidden Valley too to find its large treasure, but Jimmy, who was entrusted with the map, has second thoughts & decides to find the valley on his own to prove Bob's innocence. The sheriff meanwhile, not willing to let a convicted murderer escape, ensures the help of the ... GoodYear blimp (!). But since the pilot of the blimp (Verner

L.Smith - the real life pilot of the blimp) was once a schoolbuddy of Joyce, she persuades him to letting her come aboard too so she can assure no harm comes to Bob. & Bob they find, but he manages to persuade them to help him look for the Hidden Valley, where they encounter the lost tribe that is about to sacrifice Jimmy to the Sun God, as well as Frank & his henchmen closing in. Bob decides to parachute down to the rescue, & saves Jimmy just in time from the natives, stunned by the site of the GoodYear blimp, & soon a threeway fight ensues with Bob & Jimmy against the natives against Frank & his men. But thank god the blimp comes to the rescue of Bob & Jimmy - who promises Bob to clear his name in court - yet again.

 

Of all the B-Westerns of the 30's, Robert N.Bradbury's were easily amongh the best, since he cared renmarkably little about genre boundaries & was always willing to include elements that were decidedly non-Western to invariably interesting & non-ridiculous effect, as well as trying many a new twist on an old story, all graced by imaginative direction & beautiful camerawork.

Bob Steele, Bradbury's lead in this one & popular B-cowboy back then, was actually Bradbury's real life son with whom he had made movies every now & again from the time he was a child-actor. Steele acutally was one of the most versatile cowboy-actors of his day, one of the few whose career continued seamlessly with the introduction of sound (as opposed to Tom Mix or Ken Maynard, who both suffered from severe mike-fright), & who eventually would graduate to supporting roles in A-pictures once the pastures for B-Westerns started to run dry.
