| Good cast, good story, but poor script poorly executed
Tom Keene was a good cowboy actor. Usually. But he and his fellow cast members were burdened in "Riding the Sunset Trail" by some silly stuff apparently intended to be humor.

With the almost always but not this time excellent Frank Yaconelli and the always watchable Betty Miles, probably the best girl cowboy in movies, and the venerable Kenne (but here billed as Ken) Duncan, Keene continued to be as likable as ever, just not very entertaining.

But the flaw was in the script, and somewhat in the directing, not in the very good cast.

Players included Tom London and Gene Alsace, and they all had some good moments, even in some of the "humor" that a few times turned out actually to be funny.

It really is a good story, and you can find this for free at YouTube, so I do recommend "Riding the Sunset Trail." Just try not to let the not-very-funny "humor" de-rail you and your watching.
