A mini-Tennessee Valley Authority
16 August 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Allan Lane seemed to fit right into the Red Ryder role as Herbert J. Yates tried bigger budget items for Bill Elliott hoping he would have a breakout career like his number one contract player John Wayne. Lane was built about the same, had similar features and even a deep voice that sounded like Elliott. I didn't hear him claim to be a peaceable man though.

In Homesteaders Of Paradise Valley Red Ryder, Little Beaver and his aunt the Duchess are leading homesteaders to a place that sounds like heaven. But in fact the place has a raging river that is uncontrolled in the winter months and leaves the valley dry in the summer. What's needed there is a kind of mini-Tennessee Valley Authority and that's what Red Ryder proposes. Until then he proposes some rationing.

But a couple of brother villains who want to grab the whole valley start a propaganda campaign against Ryder to undermine. In the film they nearly succeed because the settlers seem to be an easily led group of sheep.

Fans of the Red Ryder series should like this one.
