Storyline

Marshal "Rocky" Lane (Allan Lane) comes to the aid of Sheriff Bill Walters (Ross Ford) who is having a hard time trying to save the local farmers and ranchers from raids and hi-jackings. With Banker Johnson (Hal Price) about to foreclose on all their ranches and farms, the sheriff arranges for them to get a $40,000 advance on their next grain shipment so that they can pay off their notes at the bank. But the town's supposedly honest and harmless harness maker, John Blake (Steve Darrell), who is the brains behind the gang, has the messenger, Jim Carter (Russ Whiteman killed and the money stolen. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

'Rocky' Lane: Remember, it's the one in the middle.
Janis Adams: I'll remember.
'Cricket' Adams: You don't have to. I ain't in my second childhood, though the way some people act around here you'd think it was.

Excellent cast with excellent script: Republic quality

Rocky Lane looked good on a horse. For that matter, he looked good in any setting.

Aline Towne was a good-looking and capable actress, and it's too bad we don't have more performances by her.

Walter Baldwin was simply great as the cantankerous uncle who dislikes the "pipsqueak" sheriff, ably played by Ross Ford, who is not very well known today but should be.

The script by M. Coates Webster is far above average, with excellent dialog in a good story.

Republic had its usual superlative action well directed by Fred C. Brannon and performed by the usual great stuntmen.

I saw this at YouTube in December of 2014 and again had the problem of too dark a picture. But that's my only complaint.

I highly recommend "Rough Riders of Durango" and am grateful to all the people responsible for its being available.
