Synopsis

Two prisoners make their escape when escorted by Golden Arrow and the Sheriff.

Notes

Most probably Steinberg, who is credited on this feature by Jerry Bails' Who's Who, and the horses match some samples from Hopalong Cassidy covers, and also faces and inking from T-Man. Originally credited "Max Elkan?".
