Synopsis
When the new railroad is scheduled to go through the frontier town of Rock Ridge, corrupt State Attorney General Hedley Lamarr sends thugs to scare the townspeople off the newly valuable land so he can buy it himself. This causes the citizens to demand that the Governor appoint a new sheriff to protect them. Lamarr convinces the simple-minded Governor to appoint a black railroad worker named Bart, thinking that the racist townsfolk will either move away or lynch him. But the quick-witted, urbane Bart and his alcoholic sidekick The Waco Kid set out to win over the town.
