Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Released the same week as Republic's Covered Wagon Days, Monogram's Covered Wagon Trails bears no resemblance to the first-mentioned film, either in terms of plot or quality. Jack Randall plays a heroic westerner who tries to prevent an outlaw gang from interfering with a group of farmers who've pitched camp in the open range. The local cattlemen's association dispatches the crooks to decimate the farmers, something that won't happen so long as Randall has his wits about him. The film's high point (in a manner of speaking) finds Randall, bound hand and foot, gnawing through his ropes as though he were downing an expensive meal. Not surprisingly, Jack Randall's starring career came to an end shortly after the release of Covered Wagon Trails.
