| RKO's own three Mesquiteers
Taking a cue from the successful Three Mesquiteers series at Republic Pictures, RKO teamed their cowboy B picture star Tim Holt with two sidekicks, singing and guitar strumming Ray Whitely and in the cussed old timer role Emmett Lynn.

The man the trio works for is kidnapped and held for ransom and the trio are forced into robbing a bank for the ransom money. They're too late with it and the man is killed by outlaw leader Robert Fiske.

But a peculiar chain of events allow Holt, Lynn, and Whitley to infiltrate Fiske's gang. The three act like a fifth column to bring in the outlaw gang.

Fiske is a particularly vicious villain who's not a fool by any means. Can't say as much for his outlaw gang, but I guess he just couldn't get good help.

Emmett Lynn's character is named 'Whopper' for the tall tales he'll spin at the drop of a hat and at the wrong time. He's funny, but he does get on Holt's nerves a bit. But in the end he does pull off a really neat trick to capture the whole band.

Along The Rio Grande is a nicely paced B western as Tim Holt westerns always were. Holt was one of the better B cowboy heroes and this film is typical of what RKO cast him in before his World War II service.
