Red Fork Range stars Wally Wales, who enjoyed a lengthy starring career in "B"-westerns before entering the character-actor ranks under the moniker of Hal Taliaferro. The star plays Wally Hamilton, virtually the only "good guy" in the aptly named community of Hangtown. After winning a stagecoach race, Wally makes short work of a band of marauding Indians, then rescues heroine Ruth Farrel (played by Tom Mix's daughter Ruth) from the clutches of the evil Black Bard (Al Ferguson). Saving the film from wallowing in a morass of cliches is the winning performance by Wally Wales, who invests his stock character with a refreshing sense of humor. Featured in the cast is ace stuntman Cliff Lyons, who undoubtedly had a hand in staging the film's Grade-A action sequences.
