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 <>

Weak, but fun Ryder entry
26 August 2003 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

Cheyenne Jackson, puts off selling her cattle at market in order to start drilling for oil on her land, with the help of Tom Dean, who has experience in surveying oil land prospects. Cheyenne gets all of the neighboring ranchers to split the costs, where as they would all split the profits. Banker Tuttle, who refused a loan for Cheyenne, has some of his hired thugs burn down the well, in order to foreclose on her ranch and get the land, and the oil for himself. Its up to Red to uncover Tuttle's scheming and clear the name of Dean, a former convict, of wrongdoing in the sabotage. Last Ryder for Elliott (who doesn't even say he's a "peaceable man" in this one), but compared to the previous entries in this series, this one comes off as a lackluster effort. Director Springsteen forgoes much action, sans two average fights, and puts in too much filler, but in fairness to him, this is a weak script. All in all, when you compare the Ryder series to others in the B western genre, a movie such as this does come off better than most, in my opinion. Rating, out of B westerns, 5.
