Unbeknownst to them, their supposed friend, land-and-cattle dealer Martin Dexter (Robert Frazer), and the town lawyer, Silas Higby (Ted Adams), have plans of their own; should Foster's road see completion, homesteaders would occupy the strip and ruin Dexter's plans to buy the 500,000 acres for cattle-grazing land. Dester hires a band of renegade Indians to attack the road crew. Indian scout Jim Brady (Budd Buster)sees a supply wagon driver by "Red" and June being cased by the renegades, alerts the work-camp crew and then rides to summon Captain Duke Cameron (Allan Lane) and his U.S. Cavalry troop but, before they arrive, Foster has been killed along with many of his ...

Trivia

Edward Tood, assigned to co-edit this serial with Tony Martinelli, died suddenly during the filming, on February 2, 1943, prior to any assembly, and was replaced by Wallace Grissell. Todd had been co-editor on 24 previous Republic serials, beginning with "Dick Tracy' in 1937. He was not, as some contributor has assumed, an uncredited editor of this serial. He had been assigned to do so but died before any editing had begun. See more »

The Serial Squadron is currently holding a pledge drive for Daredevils of the West along with three other vintage serials.BYU has provided a copy to the Squadron for restoration.The process includes replacing missing dialog using professional actors.When the required number of pledges are reached,restoration will begin. Presently this serial exists only in the form of four fragmented chapters for the general public. Another entry,depending on pledges ,is the very popular Drums of Fu Manchu.An almost pristine print has been provided to the Squadron for restoration.Depending on pledges,a Blu-ray and / or regular DVD edition will be available.For complete information go to serialsquadron.com. These serials were made during the golden years when Republic Pictures were at their peak. Drums of Fu Manchu,a fifteen chapter concerns the evil Dr. Fu Manchu who strives to be supreme ruler of the world. DVD prints are available now but leave a lot to be desired.Daredevils star the popular western action actor Allan Lane and serial queen Kaye Aldridge. Update....As of January 2011,this serial has been completely restored and will be ready for shipment! For complete details go to serial squadron.com
