| Technically speaking, it's probably the most incompetent western Bob Steele made.
"Riders of the Range" is a terrible B-western, and it's a shame as I usually love Bob Steele films and have watched most of his films. But I could not get past the sheer incompetence of the production-- it is third-rate throughout and looks like a movie made by complete amateurs. For example, when the film begins you see a lot of random stock footage accompanied by music that doesn't even come close to fitting the action. Then, out of the blue, you're treated to "Swannee River" with its racist lyrics as a prologue appears on the screen. While I don't particularly care for this sort of exposition explaining the film, this movie really cocked it up, as throughout the movie it was interrupted by these textual explanations as to what was happening, who was involved and the like. It was almost like seeing intertitle cards on an old silent film! The bottom line is that I really wonder if the studio (if you could call it that) just took footage from various Steele films and spliced them together--along with the explanatory text. It's a dull and inept film, full of scenes that might just have been made up of retakes and scrapped footage.
