Timothy John Fitzgerald McCoy or just Tim McCoy starred in an amazing 52 Westerns, eight of which were produced by Victory Pictures. In Code Of The Cactus, he plays "Lightnin' Bill" Carson, who in the guise of a fast-shooting Mexican bursts a cattle-rustling gang. His "sidekick" in this movie is Ben Corbett. THE PLOT: When cattle ranch foreman Magpie (Ben Corbett) looses cattle to rustlers, he calls upon his friend "Lightnin' Bill" Carson (Tim McCoy) for help. Posing as a Mexican, Carson infiltrates the gang and soon finds out that it was Blacton's men who were stealing cattle. Blackton (Forrest Taylor), a meat-packer, has a contract with U.S. army for the supply of 500 heads of cattle each month at rock bottom prices. The only way he could make a few dollars from the deal was by rustlin' cattle from helpless ranchers. The use of powerful trucks and machine guns by Blacton's gang gives the story a refreshingly modern touch.
