Storyline

The ranch of Red Ryder (Allan Lane) and his aunt, The Duchess (Martha Wentworth), is being used as the training site for "Gentleman Jim" Corbett (George Turner) for his upcoming fight in Carson City, Nevada for the heavyweight championship against Bob Fitzsimmons (John Dehner). Molly McVey (Peggy Stewart), the daughter of a U.S. Senator, crusading against prize-fighting in Nevada, complicates matters soemwhat when she conceives the bright idea of having Corbett kidnapped, thus causing the cancellation of the fight. The two men (George Chesebro and George Lloyd) she hires to do the kidnapping also add to the complications by kidnapping Ryder instead of Corbett. Meanwhile, a gang of crooks, led by McKean (Roy Barcroft), descend on the town intent on looting the town and also making off with the fight proceeds.

Red Ryder and the "boxer" rebellion ...........
16 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this fine entry from the Red Ryder series, Red Ryder battles a kidnapping plot, greedy henchmen and some pretty bad galoots intent on disrupting a championship bout.

Allan "Rocky" Lane does a good job in the lead role, though he was never quite as convincing as the great Wild Bill Elliott had been. The film is not very historically accurate, but does provide good B-western action. George Chesboro is , as usual, appropriately evil as a villain.

While this is not the best film of the series, it is a marked improvement over the previous Stagecoach to Denver. Fans of Red Ryder & the Duchess should enjoy this one.
