An ex-con is murdered in Yellowstone National Park while a bank robber's son is searching for the loot his father hid there 20 years before.



Filming started June 1936.[3]



The Christian Science Monitor called it "an inferior mystery story".[4]

Diabolique called it "a decent thriller notable for its weak leads, robust support cast and incorporation of location photography at Yellowstone National Park."[5]

Lubin called the film "horrible", one of what he considered the "eight flops" in his career.[6]
