Riding West Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P67732~Charles Starrett~charlesstarrett]] stars in the lightning-paced Columbia western Riding West. Somebody is planning to sabotage the new Pony Express mail service, and hard-ridin' Steve Jordan ([[Performer~P67732~Charles Starrett~charlesstarrett]]) aims to find out who. Though he claims to be "a peaceable man," Jordan isn't above using his fists or fanning his six-gun to rout the villains. Comedy relief is provided by [[Performer~P33950~Arthur Hunnicutt~arthurhunnicutt]] as snake-oil peddler Arkansas Higgins, while the "femme interest" is Shirley Patterson, whose Columbia Pictures resume extended from the first [[Feature~V4278~Batman~batman]] serial to a few [[Performer~P70872~3 Stooges~thethreestooges]] and Harry Langdon 2-reelers. Of interest to country-western fans is the presence of Ernest Tubbs and his Singing Cowboys. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
