When Randy (John Wayne) arrives at Half Way House to investigate some crooked goings-on for the House's owner Ed Rogers, he finds everyone has been shot, including Rogers, and rather recently too. Recently enough for the sheriff (Earl Dwire), who arrives a short time later, to book Randy for the killings. Randy, who doesn't want to blow his cover as investigator, lets the sheriff arrest him, but soon enough he can convince Ed Rogers' daughter Sally (Alberta Vaughan) that he is innocent, and soon enough too, she helps him break jail.

While hunted by the sheriff and his mob, Randy rather accidently finds the secret hide-out of the real gangsters, led by one Marvin Black (Gabby Hayes), who is known in town as the mute and hunchbacked but mild-mannered Matt the Mute ... but with his gang he shows his real face, lets hear his real voice - and has no hunchback.

Black decides to keep Randy in his gang, as he figures he might be able to use him. In the meantime, he has his men abduct Sally, as he wants the money - a mere $ 30.000 - she has hidden somewhere in Half Way House, and he wants Half Way House as well, because this would give him control of the region. Sally though refuses to talk, but then gives the hideout of the money away to Randy ... who promptly rides off to get the money and replace it with dynamite, then gets the sheriff and his mob to follow him to the gang's hide-out. But as if that wasn't enough, once back with the gang, he spills the beans on the money's hiding place to Black (but of course forgets to mention that he has replaced the dough with dynamite).

The whole situation culminates in a big shoot-out, with all the outlaws being either shot or arrested, only Black gets away ... and heads for Half Way House to at least get the loot.

Unfortunately though, he tries to shoot open the strongbox the money is supposed to be in, only instead of money, there's dynamite inside ... boom !

Ah yeah, and in the end Randy gets the girl.

 

John Wayne's Westerns for Monogram/Lone Star are all pretty decent, even inventive efforts, and this one is no exception. The standard plot of the loner tracking down a gang of outlaws while being outlawed himself is expanded by non-genre-typical elements like the gangster boss leading a doulbe life as mute hunchback, Half Way House with its secret compartments, the villains' impressive mountain hideout, and the main villain done away by a self-triggered, massive explosion in the end. All that, combined with fast paced direction and plenty of usual action make this a fine B-Western.
