In this entry of Monogram's "Rough Riders" series (no relationship to the dull TV series of the 50's), Ma Turner of Red Bluff sends for U.S.Marshal Buck Roberts to investigate a series of wide-spread rustling in the area. Town banker Miller, saloon-owner Duke Mason and the crooked sheriff are in cahoots with rancher John Holt, but they double-cross and kill him. His son Steve witnesses the murder and kills the sheriff. Buck arrives and arrests Steve. Marshal Tim McCall, posing as an outlaw, gains the confidence of the gang and engineers the escape, with Buck's knowledge, of Steve from the jail. Sandy Hopkins, the third Marshal of the trio, poses as a peddler and learns that the gang intends to do away with Buck and rides to the Turner ranch to warn him. Red, a Turner ranch hand but also a member of the gang, overhears Buck telling Ma that Tim is really a U.S. Marshal, and he has Miller and Mason informed. Written by Les Adams <>

Mortgaged to the hilt
18 March 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Sarah Padden a tough old frontierswoman and rancher calls on an old friend Buck Jones a US Marshal to investigate rustling in her area. When you call on one Rough Rider you get three as Marshals Tim McCoy and Raymond Hatton come to help also.

The situation is a bad one as a lot of the ranchers are mortgaged to the hilt to the town banker Walter McGrail. So you know he has to be the one behind the rustling with a couple of other partners. Bankers were popular villains in those years.

One thing about McGrail that kind of tickled me. When the jig is up and the Rough Riders are closing in, McGrail's instinct as a banker kind of tickled my funny bone.

You'll have to watch Riders Of The West to find out.
