The Border Patrolman is a classic Western movie that takes place on the Arizona-Mexico border. It was released in 1936 and stars George O'Brien as the main character, Tom Sharper, a Border Patrolman who finds himself in the middle of a dangerous situation. The film begins with Tom Sharper and his friend, Pedro, on patrol, trying to prevent illegal immigrants from entering the United States. While on patrol, they come across a group of smugglers who are trying to move illegal immigrants across the border. Tom and Pedro chase after the smugglers and manage to capture one of them. The captured smuggler tells Tom that the leader of the group is a man named Devlin.

Tom decides to infiltrate Devlin's gang in order to catch them in the act. He pretends to be an outlaw and meets with Devlin to get a job with the gang. Devlin is impressed with Tom's skills and hires him on the spot.

Tom soon discovers that Devlin is planning to rob a train that is carrying a large sum of money. Tom must find a way to stop the train robbery, without blowing his cover.

While working for Devlin, Tom meets Devlin's two sisters, Hattie and Maureen. Hattie is a gun-toting cowgirl who is Tom's love interest, while Maureen is a kind-hearted woman who is engaged to the town's doctor.

As Tom continues to work with Devlin's gang, he is forced to make some difficult decisions. He must decide whether to follow the law or to protect his new friends. He also finds himself in dangerous situations, where he must use his quick thinking and sharp shooting skills to stay alive.
