Trivia

Three names in the cast list went on to much bigger things in the 1960s and 1970s. Robert Blake became a star of films and television, Blake Edwards became a major director and Robert J. Wilke--barely visible here in the non-speaking role of the sheriff's deputy who is shot during the hold-up--became a very in-demand character actor. See more »

The Capital Seat
21 November 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Red Ryder, Gabby Hayes, and Little Beaver have come home to the Duchess's ranch and there's trouble a brewing. An unexpected rash of lawlessness of all kinds including a stagecoach holdup with the driver killed. Two innocent kids, Jay Kirby and Blake Edwards are accused of the deed and our trio of heroes have to prove what they already know. Blake Edwards and that's the future award winning director himself is killed and Kirby is on the run.

All this outlawry is quite organized and it's done to make sure that another city other than Red Ryder's hometown becomes the county seat. Why that's so important to the bad guys is never really explained. Without an explanation I think the whole film is rather ridiculous.

Wild Bill Elliott is your tall in the saddle cowboy hero with Bobby Blake as Little Beaver and Gabby Hayes as Gabby Hayes.

One of the worst of the Red Ryder series from Republic.
