Plot Summary

In Death Valley, the Desert Borax Co. is on the verge of failure as borax deposits are exhausted. Along with the other mule-team drivers, Bill Bragg (Wallace Beery) goes unpaid and is barred from his room over a saloon owned by Josie Johnson (Marjorie Rambeau), whose daughter, Jean (Anne Baxter), is engaged to company clerk Mitch (Noah Beery Jr.). When borax is found next to the body of a dead prospector, Bragg searches for the man's claim -- only to find that Mitch is the prospector's partner.
