Storyline

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.

Watchable But Forgettable Rough Riders Entry
6 August 2011 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Buck Jones, Tim McCoy, and Raymond Hatton are called in to solve a series of sometimes deadly cattle rustling incidents, all involving ranchers indebted to the local bank.

An okay entry in Monogram Pictures' Rough Riders series, this is a little more plot-heavy than the average poverty row western programmer. Once again, action and gun-play take a backseat to undercover sleuthing, with the Riders' well-used tactic of disguising themselves as separate strangers in order to work different angles of the case. McCoy manages to outshine his co-stars yet again.

Always fun to watch is Charles King, playing a heavy for the umpteenth time in a B-western.
