A double bill of early John Wayne westerns. In 'The Dawn Rider' (1935), John Mason (Wayne) learns a bitter lesson when he witnesses his father being shot down in an express office hold up. Determined to bring the desperadoes to justice Mason hunts them down, but he is wounded as he does so. His reward is to be nursed back to health by the beautiful Marion Burns. Whilst in 'Texas Terror' (1935), Sheriff John Higgins (Wayne) follows three men responsible for a hold-up at Wells Fargo to the ranch of his oldest friend, Dan Matthews. When Matthews is killed by the outlaws, Higgins mistakenly believes himself to be responsible, and quits his job as sheriff. When Dan's daughter comes to claim her inheritance, she asks Higgins to help prove that Dan was not part of the hold-up.
