Filmed in rapid succession over an 18-month period, the 19 Tom Tyler westerns for Reliable Productions tend to look alike at times. Riding On is typical Tyler, with our hero returning home to find his father embroiled in a deadly frontier feud over water rights. A "Romeo and Juliet" angle is established when Tom Roarke (Tyler) falls in love with Gloria O'Neill (Geraine Greer), the daughter of his father's bitter enemy. Not surprisingly, the range war is being fomented by a third party who hopes to move in and pick up the pieces when the Roarkes and the O'Neills kill each other off. The haste with which Riding On was slapped together is indicated in the gunfight scenes, with poorly aimed bullets picking off their targets with astonishing accuracy.
