Carl Laemmle presents Buck Jones in "The Ivory-Handled Gun" (Buck Jones Pro­duc­tions/Universal Pictures 1935), alternately known as The Ivory-Handled "Guns" (plural), which will make sense when you watch the movie.

Early scenes, including the death scene where rancher Pat Moore (Joseph W. Girard) is shot down, show the Jauregui Ranch in Placerita Canyon.

We aren't certain, but the town with the one- and two-story buildings in the middle of the movie, as well as the log cabin where Buck is tied up, are probably the neighboring Trem Carr Pictures Ranch (1931-1936) in Placerita Canyon. Both the Jauregui Ranch and Trem Carr's movie ranch are part of Walt Disney Co.'s Golden Oak Ranch today.

Vasquez Rocks is featured throughout the last half of the movie. At the time, the central Vasquez Rocks feature was still owned by Henry Krieg, who homesteaded the property in 1910, and by his great-nephew Edward Toney, who inherited it after Krieg's death in 1937.
