Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Veteran B-western auteur Benjamin F. Wilson (the "F" stood for "Franklin," of course) produced, directed, and starred in this very low budget silent oater about a reformed bandit turned lawman. After cleaning up a lawless town and winning the love of the local schoolmarm (Wilson regular Neva Gerber), the hero has enough energy leftover to recover a valuable silver mine from a gang of claim jumpers. Riders of the West (a typically meaningless title) also featured the talents of Ed LaNiece, Bud Osborne and Fang, a wolf dog. Edward Linden was behind the camera and the script came courtesy of the prolific Robert A. Dillon.
