He's got the grazing rights, she's got the mineral rights
This George O'Brien western for RKO has O'Brien as a cattleman and Laraine Day as a miner's daughter who are both on the same government land where he's got grazing rights and she's got mineral rights through her father. Perennial western villain Fred Kohler is out to do both of them out of their rights and in fact has Day's father killed as part of his scheme.
O'Brien and Day don't hit it off at first but realize they have a commonality of rational self interest in fighting Kohler. In fact O'Brien saves her in ways she doesn't know about until the end of the film. It's nothing but love.
Painted Desert will satisfy most western fans though it surely sets no new ground.
