Wild Bill tames a few hooligans and saves ranch .......
16 June 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

William "Wild Bill " Elliott appears here in an excellent Red Ryder film from 1945. Elliott was the best of the various men to portray the Red Ryder and this film is a prime example of why.

Elliott is very convincing here as he helps reform wayward youth and then has to confront trouble back at the ranch. Future singin'cowboy Monte Hale appears in this one, as does the always reliable George Chesboro .

I have always felt that Red Ryder was best when it was a Radio series. This film and this lead actor come very close to living up to that high standard. Not a bad film at all ............
