A young adventurer, Bill Hickok, is the only thing standing between a band of outlaws and a shipment of gold bound for Yankee soldiers. Morrell's Raiders, veteran stage coach thieves, snatch the gold and frame Hickok for the theft. Wild Bill must pursue the Raiders to clear his name and recover the treasure. "King of the Cowboys" Roy Rogers, stars as Wild Bill Hickok in this action-packed Western from the golden age of Hollywood. Aided by Sally Payne as the sassy Calamity Jane, Roy sings a few memorable songs between the thrilling horse chases and shoot-outs. The action sequences are a triumph of Republic Picture's top flight stunt work. Young Bill Hickok also stars Gabby Hayes as the salty Gabby Whitaker and features B-Western regular Hal Talaiferro's sharp portrayal of the bandit Morrell.
