Storyline

Mesquite banker Calvin Drake plans to profit from the Santa Fe Railroad's acquisition of right-of-way by gaining control of the land in the territory. In the ensuing war of intimidation against the ranchers, Ira Withers is killed and Red Ryder and his father, Colonel Tom Ryder, form an organization to drive the gunmen and outlaws out of the territory. Colonel Ryder is killed by One-Eye Chapin and Red vows vengeance. Sheriff Dade is in league with the Drake faction, including Ace Hanlon. The Duchess, Red's aunt, is about to lose her ranch. Red learns of a plan to dynamite a dam providing the water supply, and saves Beth Andrews, daughter of the former sheriff, Luke Andrews who was also murdered by Drake's men.

18 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you love serials,this one belongs in your top ten.Directed by the ace team of Whitney and English,this production is first rate all the way.Red Ryder,played by Don Barry,seeks revenge against the outlaws that killed his father,and are grabbing all the ranches.There are no mystery villians,but with Noah Berry sr.,Harry Worth,and Bob Kortman leading the cast of heavies,who needs mystery men? Along with an exciting music score by Cy Feuer,and fine photography by William Nobles,this one is aces all the way. Note:This is on dvd and tape.The dvd has great picture and sound and lots of extra features.
