| Serial review
As serials go, this one has the usual exciting cliffhangers and excellent stunt work found in most Republic Pictures cliffhangers. The plot is standard with a phony Indian agent making a lucrative living raiding and stealing from the Indians. When the Indians decide ,with the aid of the local doctor , to form the Indian police and protect their land, the gang led by LeRoy Mason and Kenne Duncan turn up the heat. The doctor played by Robert Kent and the chiefs son Blue Feather,played by George J.Lewis take on the gang.To rally the Indians cause, the schoolteacher played by Peggy Stewart and the doctor re-create a legendary Indian God ,The Spirit Rider to fight the gang. For twelve chapters, The Rider manages to second guess Mason and his gang. Ably directed by Brannon and Bennett; Kent, Stewart, and Lewis head a good supporting cast. Not an outstanding serial, but still an entertaining two hours of cliffhanger viewing.
