Storyline

Sunset Carson, ace driver for the Harding Stagecoach Line, persuades his boss Frank Harding (Edmund Cobb) to hire his brother, Jeff (Bob Steele), recently released from the penitentiary. Sunset isn't aware that Jeff owes his release to Marc Redmond (Tristram Coffin), owner of the rival line, and that Redmond is forcing Jeff to give him advance information when the Harding stages are carrying valuable shipments, so that his henchmen can rob the stage and force Harding out of business.

Siblings?
2 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Maybe it was just a casting thing, but whatever possessed Herbert J. Yates to approve casting the 6'6" Sunset Carson with 5'6" Bob Steele as brothers? In scenes together in Rio Grande Raiders the two looked positively ridiculous. No way anyone even the most enthusiastic B western fan would believe those two as siblings.

In the tradition of the B western Carson is in white while Steele is in Black. They work for most of the film for rival stagecoach lines, Carson for Edmund Cobb and Steele for the ruthless Tris Coffin who'll do just about anything to put his rival out of business and pulls some dastardly stunts.

It's also a case of acting chops as well. Steele developed some pretty good ones while Carson who is cut to be a cowboy hero never was anything else. It really, painfully shows in their scenes together.

Siblings, siblings, there were never such fighting siblings.
