Good because it lacks the singing and glitz of later westerns, but also awfully dull.
24 September 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Harry Carey Sr. plays a newcomer to town and the viewer is led to believe he MIGHT just be the so-called 'Night Rider'--a bandit who dresses a bit like Zorro. Along the way, he makes friends with Manuel and Altoona (Gabby Hayes). And, in the end, the REAL identity of the bandit becomes known.

In some ways, I liked this film. It certainly lacked the glamor, singing and fancy duds you'd see in a Gene Autry or Roy Rogers film--and I liked that. But it was also incredibly slow, low energy and Carey was no longer the handsome silent cowboy and simply seemed too old for such a virile role. Not a terrible film--though a few of the actors were amazingly bad! At best a time-passer.
