The fourth of 12 singing Westerns starring the "Silvery-Voiced Baritone," Fred Scott, Melody of the Plains begins peacefully enough with Scott, as cowboy Steve Condon, warbling Don Swander and June Hershey's "Albuquerque." The story quickly takes a rather grim turn when one of Steve's colleagues, Bud (David Sharpe), is shot and killed after selling out to a gang of rustlers. Mistakenly believing he fired the deadly shot, a dejected Steve, along with sidekick Fuzzy (Al St. John), goes to work for Bud's father (Lafe McKee), a rancher nearly forced into bankruptcy by a crooked land developer (Hal Price). The latter hires Bud's real killer (Charles "Slim" Whitaker) to infiltrate the ranch hands, but Steve and Fuzzy see through the ruse and bring the villains to justice. In addition to "Albuquerque," Fred Scott performs "A Hideaway in Happy Valley," also by Swander and Hershey. Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
