Elliott's swan song as Ryder finds wildcatter Tom Dean (Jay Kirby) talking the fiery Cheyenne Jackson (Peggy Stewart) into drilling for oil on her land. Town banker Tuttle (Milton Kibbee) knows there is oil on the Jackson land, and the other ranches, and refuses to lend her the money for the drilling. Cheyenne sells the local ranchers on forming a combine to raise the funds needed and Dean proceeds. Tuttle, after everybody's land, has the drilling rig blown up and Dean framed for the act. But Red Ryder (Bill Elliott as Wild Bill Elliott) isn't having any of that and begins to unravel the Tuttle scheme. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Oil in West Texas
21 April 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This Red Ryder film has Wild Bill Elliott trying to save cousin Peggy Stewart's ranch as some unscrupulous people are trying to get a hold of it because there's oil on the property. Something that young geologist Jay Kirby late of the Hopalong Cassidy series is trying to prove. But the fact that Kirby served a term in prison does compromise his believability.

In fact the town takes a lot of convincing as Stewart rides to town in what they called back in the day a horseless carriage and frightens the horses and livestock. Most upset of all is sheriff Tom London who appeared in a gazillion of these B westerns. This will never take the place of the horse, especially in the not so wild west at this point.

Wild enough in Conquest Of Cheyenne for their to be a few murders that the villains try to pin on Kirby. Not being fooled a bit is Red Ryder as usual.

Fans of the Red Ryder series should be pleased.
