Riders for Justice is the TV title of the Republic "Three Mesquiteers" western Westward Ho (the change was made to avoid confusion with a 1936 John Wayne vehicle of the same name). The Mesquiteers this time out are Bob Steele as Tucson Smith, Tom Tyler as Stony Brooke and Rufe Davis as Lullaby Joslin. Former silent film leading lady Evelyn Brent chews the scenery as the villainess, who stage-manages robberies while hiding behind the respectable veneer of town banker. The presence of a "bad girl" rather than a "bad guy" distinguishes this effort from the rest of the "Mesquiteers" entries. Within a year, the series' personnel would undergo another of its periodic changes, with future Mickey Mouse Club star Jimmy Dodd replacing Rufe Davis as Lullaby.
