Storyline

Bob Marlow is sent undercover to an Arizona town where an outlaw gang, comprised of the six Tolliver brothers, have taken over the town and terrorizing the citizens. He comes to town, posing as an Eastern dude, and, through a series of incidents manages to get rid of three of the brothers, mostly through their own ineptness. The remaining brothers decide to get-while-the-gettin'-is good, rob the bank and head for the Mexican border. But Bob isn't far behind. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

"The Deadliest Starpacker in the Territory"
6 July 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Rider Of The Law in this film is Bob Steele. But Bob chooses quite the disguise, the better to get information and not have the outlaws take him so seriously.

The town is the grip of a gang of six brothers named Tolliver who roam in at will and conduct all kinds of robbery and mayhem. No one wants to do anything, in fact just like in Bottleneck in Destry Rides Again they get the town drunk Si Jenks to be sheriff.

Young Bob Steele arrives in town from the east, he's a tenderfoot and no one takes him seriously. He 'accidentally' kills some of the Tolliver brothers and they make him Jenks's deputy. In reality he's one of 'the deadliest starpackers in the territory".

Borrowing a bit from Destry Rides Again, The Rider Of The Law is one of Bob Steele's best B westerns. It's got lots of action and it's laced with humor, courtesy of Si Jenks.

This is a good one, despite the limited production values.
