Too good a cast and too much good dialogue for less than 8
Tom Tyler should have been a major star, with his looks and his ability, but his health prevented. But this role, at 10 years into his career, showed his looks, his athleticism, and his potential.
He was surrounded by an excellent band of Western players, with that memorably voiced Al Bridge as the chief bad guy, and a charmer named Adele Lacy as the leading lady.
She was cute, and in a couple scenes showed she could have been a bigger star, when she got to be winsome or flirty. Her usual roles were as uncredited dancer in such hits as "42nd Street."
The plot here probably belongs to F. McGrew Willis, of whom I know nothing, but the screen adaptation was by the great Oliver Drake, and I expect he deserves most, if not all, the credit for the clever and entertaining lines.
Most of the excellent cast members are not known today, but they were just about perfect as cowboys, deputies, henchmen, stage driver and guard, and really made this an enjoyable B Western.
"When a Man Rides Alone" -- using an oft-told story in an unusual way -- is very well worth watching, and you can see it at YouTube. I hope you do.
