A cooperative of independent oil men goes up against a greedy Eastern syndicate in this Republic Pictures serial directed by Fred C. Brannon. Colonel Arnold (Cliff Clark), his daughter Sally (Judy Clark) and Ward Gordon (Richard Powers) furnish the leadership of the cooperative but are constantly threatened by Eastern mogul Dude Dawson (I. Stanford Jolley) and especially his chief henchman, Hacker. The latter was played by burly Roy Barcroft, Republic's now legendary master villain. Leading man Richard Powers had begun his screen career in the '20s under the name George Duryea, then became Tom Keene, B-Western star, in the '30s. He was again using the Tom Keene moniker when appearing in Edward D. Wood, Jr.'s legendary turkey, Plan 9 from Outer Space (1956).
