Larry is a rancher’s son who is trapped into taking the blame for the murder of the Marshall. The rustlers who did the killing blackmail him into paying them off to keep things quiet. Later in the stormy night, the Marshall’s body is found by the Lone Ranger, Tonto, and Dan Reed.
We learn more about Larry and the weight his guilt is forcing on him. His aging rancher father carved out his fortune in cattle the hard way, and his best hope is that Larry will turn out to be as hard working, respectable, and responsible as he had been. How can Larry ever come clean to his dad about the murder that he has become entangled in?
As Larry and his dad ride the range, going afrter the rustlers, the elder rancher mistakes the Lone Ranger for the bandits. When the air is cleared, Larry comes clean to the masked man, telling the truth about how he was set up. Can the Lone Ranger hjelp set things right? There’s no reason to expect that Larry can get off, but Lone Ranger sees that the young rancher is earnest and sets out to do all he can to help.
Listen in to see how the tables are turned on our bandits, and Larry saves the day for his dad, and the stolen cattle.
