After fleeing the law in New York, Dr. Steve Kells (Roy Rogers) heads west, and meets another fugitive, "Honest" John Whittaker (George "Gabby" Hayes) along the way. When the two encounter an outlaw gang called the Border Legion, there's a shootout, and the gang's boss is shot. Kells, being a doctor, is coerced into helping ... and then reluctantly joining the gang. He and Honest John devise a plan that will lead the outlaws into a trap, and set themselves free. The musical highlight includes a spirited rendition of the cowboy classic "Get Along Little Doggies," and it just don't get more Western than that.
