Synopsis for Alias the Spider: "The Boy and the Bank Robbers"

A series of mid-western and western banks are robbed by a gang that sets up fake movie shoots, to cover up their crimes. Along the way they kidnap a young boy, and con him into believing he’s taking part in a movie production, while using him as a human shield in their bank jobs.

The Spider comes racing out of the east, in the Black Widow, and hunts for the gang, starting in Ridgewood, Utah, a recent robbery scene. Before long, the gang’s trail leads him right back to Ridgewood, so the Spider pays a local, aged, pistol-packing cowboy to hide his distinctive-looking car, and ducks into a saloon with his new pal. The old cowboy knows where the gang hangs out and leads the Spider to a particular house; a gunfight ensues, to which the old cowboy has brought two .45 revolvers; they chase the robbers until they hunker down behind a parked car and start shooting back. One robber scuttles into the house and brings out the boy, again doing the human shield thing.

Both the Spider and the old cowboy shoot once, both fatally; the boy is rescued, and the remaining two thugs flee in their sedan. The Spider and his two friends pile into the Black Widow and give chase, into the snow-covered mountains, where they find the hoods holed up in an old cabin. The Spider uses his burning seal arrow to set fire to the parked sedan, then does some more trick shooting to cut off the cabin’s water line, and to close off the exhaust pipe from the cabin’s stove. This drives the robbers into the open. The Spider chases them down and beats them up, then encourages the old cowboy to take them in and collect the reward, then returns to his New York home.
