| Not much fighting, but still a good oater.
Faro Savage is trying to grab ahold of all the cattle he can and calls on rancher Dan O'Connor to help him cut down the fences of all the neighboring ranchers, so Savage can get ahold of all the roaming cattle. When O'Connor refuses Savage's offer, he decides to send a telegram to his friend Red Ryder to help him, despite the protests of O'Connor's daughter Sheila, who believes her family is too proud to accept help. When Savage kills a neighboring rancher, O'Connor discovers the gun, and plans to take it to the sheriff but he is later killed by Savage, right before Ryder arrives, and its up to Red, Buckskin, Little Beaver, and the Duchess to find the evidence against Savage. Decent Ryder entry, not as good as the Republic series, but able to hold his own. Bannon's interpretation seems to grow on me after awhile. The film has a decent finish, but does seem to move slowly up til then. The plot at the beginning with the rancher moving into Red's spread with his daughter is never brought up into the plot again. Rating, based on B westerns, 6.
