Great photo Larry, thanks.
I feel sure that the scenes with Duke in prison uniform
were even in the movie!
Rainbow Valley is a 1935 American Western film released by Monogram Pictures,
written by Lindsley Parsons, directed by Robert N. Bradbury and starring John Wayne
I am biased towards, these Lone Star films.
I enjoy all of them, for all their whirlwind, few days, low budget filming,
they are a joy, and fun to watch.
This routine oater, see Duke as John Martin, a government agent,
sent to prevent a gang, halting construction on a vital road.
Duke in a run of the mill, western, supported well,
by another regular love interest, Lucille Brown,
with Gabby, and Lafe Mc Fee, giving able support.
Another one. in the relentless schedule,

A routine "B" western in the Lone Star series of westerns Wayne made in the 30's.
What sets this one apart is John Wayne as a "Singing" Cowboy.
This was the time of the beginning of the Singing Cowboy era in "B" westerns (e.g. Gene Autry).*
Wayne's voice is obviously dubbed. He sure doesn't look comfortable serenading the heroine*
or warbling a tune while riding across the prairie.
Fortunately for all concerned (especially the Duke) this experiment was quickly ended.
Anyone who wants to hear the Duke's "real" singing voice should watch the opening credits of "Cahill U.S. Marshal".

INFORMATION FROM IMDb
Rainbow Valley needs a new road and newcomer John Martin agrees to build it.
Rogers is out to stop it and alters the town's petition to the Governor thereby
obtaining the release of his boss Butch Galt. John and Butch were cell mates in prison.
So Butch gets John to agree to wreck the road and furnishes him with dynamite.
But dynamite is just what John needs to finish the work and he hopes
to take care of Butch's gang at the same time.
