Nat Parker (Arthur Franz) has been in jail for four years for a bank
job, and now his girlfriend Beata (Carol Thurston) wants him to go
straight and return the money from the job (which ahs never been found) to
its rightful owner. Thing is, he doesn't want to return the money after
spending four years in the pen because of it, and his old partners Vic
(Keith Richards - no, not that Keith Richards) and Wade (Francis
McDonald), who set him up back in the day, now want to get their hands on
the money as well (without giving him his share, naturally), and only wait
for him to lead them to it.
Enter the Lone Ranger (Clayton Moore) and
his faithful sidekick Tonto (Jay Silverheels), who make every attempt in
the book to set poor Nat straight - but in the end, it's the baddies
himself who succeed in it, who take Beata hostage and want to exchange her
for the money ... which is when Nat learns that Beata does mean more to
him than all the riches in the world ... and in the end, he and the Lone
Ranger succeed in capturing the villains and bringing them to justice.
TV-Western, especially considering it was made in 1949, when the medium as
such was still in its infancy ... but don't expect anything special or
anything you haven't seen better in B-Western from the time.
