    Plot Summary
    Dan Ballard, a respected citizen in the western town of Silver Lode,
    has his wedding interrupted by four men led by Fred McCarty, an old acquaintance who,
    as a US Marshal, arrests Ballard for the murder of his brother and the theft of $20,000.
    Ballard seeks to stall McCarty while tracking down evidence that will prove his innocence:
    but the townspeople's loyalty to him gradually begins to waver under McCarty's accusations.

    for example, the name of the villain is Fred McCarty.

    Goofs
    Continuity
    John Payne is seen throughout the film wearing black cowboy boots,
    but when his stunt double leaps aboard a wagon,
    the double is seen to wear low shoes with white socks.


    Revealing mistakes
    When Ballard hides near a haystack outside the Evans house,
    his shadow and the shadows of his pursuers fall on to the painted backdrop,
    revealing it as canvas and not a real landscape.
