Storyline

Out-of-work cowboys Kansas Jones and Chito Rafferty are offered jobs at pretty Dusty Willis' ranch after saving her from a beating by saloon owner Clint Burrows. Dusty's good-hearted but weak-willed brother Harry, adding to his $3000 gambling debt to Willis, reluctantly agrees to pay it off by allowing the Ringo Kid, Burrows' vicious hired gun, to rustle cattle from his sister's ranch. Kansas intervenes, deters the rustlers and persuades Harry to confess his involvement to Dusty. Kansas, sent into town by Dusty to pay off Harry's debts, suddenly finds himself on the wrong side of the law, wrongly accused of murder and must rely on Dusty's belief in his innocence for his salvation.

Stagecoach Reunion
23 September 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Tim Holt and Tom Tyler both veterans of the John Ford classic Stagecoach return and reunite in this quality Tim Holt western Riders Of The Range. The film finds Tim and Richard Martin as a couple itinerant cowboys who help lady in distress Jacqueline White and her brother Robert Clarke who are ranch owners.

If it ain't rustlers it's gamblers as saloon owner Reed Hadley starts accumulating IOUs from Willis who has a gambling problem. When he can't pay Hadley conceives of a nice scheme whereby Willis just turns over the cattle to Hadley for his IOUs with Tom Tyler doing the rustling. But for the unexpected presence of Tim and Chito it might have worked.

Hadley and Tyler aren't exactly bosom buddies and the alliance between gamblers and rustlers is an uneasy one.

Somebody at RKO was having an inside joke during this film because Tyler plays the Ringo Kid. And as any classic movie fan knows, the Ringo Kid was John Wayne's character in Stagecoach and he shot it out with Tom Tyler. And Holt who had the small role of the army lieutenant in Stagecoach has a showdown with the Ringo Kid at the climax of Riders Of The Range.

A nicely constructed Tim Holt B western with a little inside joke for the devoted fan.
