Riders of the West is another entry in Monogram's repetitious but profitable "Rough Riders" series. Back in the saddle again are Buck Jones as Buck Roberts, Tim McCoy as Tim McCall, and Raymond Hatton as Sandy Hopkins. The three heroes take on a gang of cattle rustlers, using their standard method of operation: Buck, Tim and Sandy ride into a small town separately, pretending to be strangers to one another until the time is ripe to join forces. Character names like "Ma Turner" and "Duke Mason" should tip the audience off as to who the good and bad guys are. Making her second "Rough Riders" appearance is the lovely Christine McIntyre, still two years away from her tenure with the Three Stooges.
