Slow-Moving, Melodramatic Western
27 June 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

"When a Man Rides Alone" is a slow-moving and rather melodramatic Western. The story keeps the viewer's interest most of the time, but it's not an especially memorable film.

Tom Tyler is the "Llano Kid", who specializes in robbing stagecoaches carrying gold from a particular mine. He doesn't keep the gold for himself, but gives it away, for reasons that become clear later on in the film. On one of his raids, a woman passenger insists on getting a look at him, so the kid captures her. Most of the characters are strictly stock Western figures, and things move along rather slowly until, at the end, it is all sorted out.

None of it is particularly good or believable, but the plot doesn't work too badly as light entertainment.
