Uncle Red saves Dickie
10 August 2007 | by ejrjrSee all my reviews

Allan Lane is Red Ryder and Robert Blake is Little Beaver in this outing which revolves around a double-crossing stagecoach owner in Elkhorn, Colorado and Dickie, an injured orphan who needs a risky back operation.

The script is above average and the ending although predictable has an unusual twist. There are some good chase scenes and gun battles plus several subplots which help make this a cut above average.

Red is a stagecoach driver for the Duchess, owner of the line south of Elkhorn. However, for unexplained reasons, Red does not regularly work. Instead, he he is consumed with exposing a fake land commissioner and his cohorts including the sheriff of Elkhorn.

If you like Red Ryder you will like this film. If you have not watched Red Ryder, this is a good choice to first watch.
