Storyline

In the 11th of 16 films in PRC's "Lone Rider" series, Tom Cameron/The Lone Rider and Fuzzy Jones rescue a wounded man from a gang of outlaws and discover he is their old friend Smoky Hammer, half-owner of the B-X Ranch whom they are on the way to meet. Smoky's father was murdered years before, leaving a daughter Tess, who has been raised by ranch foreman Sid Clayton as his own daughter. Smoky, who has not been back in years, decides to play dead from the attack, in order to discover what is in back of the attack. The B-X Ranch charges toll for the cattle that pass through on the way to the free-grazing ranch land, and this has caused expense and hardship on the ranchers. Tess objects to this unreasonable toll but can not get a satisfactory answer from her, she thinks, father. Gil Harkness, working with Clayton, thinks he has killed Smoky and now plans on getting rid of Tess so they can have clear title to the B-X.

The Lone Rider & Company
3 August 2017 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

As this movie begins, George Houston is the Lone Rider, roaming along the road. To emphasize this, he sings a song with the repeated refrain "Oh! Let me keep roaming alone!" Unfortunately, he is riding with Al St. John, who seems smug about it under his beard. Fortunately, George quickly finds a rancher who needs to be helped, and they decide that the best way to do it is to pretend that Al is dead and buried. All too soon, Marjorie Manners turns up as someone's daughter telling men they can't collect toll on her father's land.

It's a PRC western, directed for speed and director Sam Newfield didn't get the big budgets like Edward Ulmer. I wonder what they rented it for when it played the Saturday matinees.
