| There's oil on the ranches
Wild Bill Elliott stars in yet another film as Red Ryder where he has to face The San Antonio Kid in a showdown. Duncan Renaldo plays The San Antonio Kid, noted gambler and fast draw who is asked to become a contract killer.

The stakes are high in this one. Oil company man LeRoy Mason is in cahoots with saloon owner Glenn Strange who's been running ranchers off their property because there's hidden oil there. The latest victim was Linda Stirling's father and now Stirling is living over at Red Ryder's ranch with the Duchess, Little Beaver, and Red.

Strange sends for a former faro dealer Renaldo to gun Red Ryder whom he sees as the main obstacle in getting control of the oil. But as it turns out Renaldo has a mind of his own.

Earle Hodgins is in this one functioning as an additional sidekick for Red Ryder, an adult one. Although that's a debatable point as Hodgins and little Bobby Blake get into with Blake constantly outsmarting him and providing the laughs in this western.

A good outing for Wild Bill Elliott in the Red Ryder series.
