Everyone's throwing lead at the Rough Riders
15 September 2020 | by hines-17322See all my reviews

Buck, Tim and Ray kick off a great Rough Riders series. Seems as though Bunion (Horace Murphy) was right that Buck can't turn down a request from Bat Madison (Bob Baker). McCoy comes on strong with early comic relief as a preacher who forces the barflies to sing at gunpoint. Great to see Tristram Coffin famously known for his "dead man walking" incident on live television. Easy to see why Slim Whitaker was one of the most prolific actors as a B-western villains. Also, sweethearts on the set Luana Walters and Dennis Moore were very popular in these early westerns. A lot of action and throwing lead here, especially with the spectacular final scene.
