The Star Packer is a 1934 western film directed by R.N. Bradbury and one of John Wayne's earliest westerns. A gang working for a mysterious figure known as "The Shadow" is terrorizing the town, committing murder, robbing stagecoaches, rustling cattle, and trying to force beautiful Anita Matlock (Verna Hillie) off her land. U.S. Marshal John Travers (John Wayne) assumes the position of sheriff after the death of former Sheriff Davis, determined to accomplish some good, even after learning the previous two sheriffs were also murdered by the ruthless gang. Accompanied with his Indian companion Yak (Yakima Canutt), Travers begins a quest to rid the town of the Shadow and his gang. In doing so, the two capture and interrogate members of the Shadow's gang, learning that not even the gang members are privy to his true identity, being issued their orders from behind a fake wall leading to a mysterious passage. In a daring plan, Davis and compatriots take up arms and prepare to pit themselves against the murderous gang and their mysterious leader.
