Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
The second of 18 Tom Tyler westerns produced by small-time company Reliable, this film starred the former silent screen cowboy as Tom Saunders, a young cowpoke who obtains a job on the Bar-L Guest and Dude Ranch. A series of cattle rustlings have forced ranch owner Dan Brooks (Lafe McKee) into accepting paying guests, and Tom is assigned to catch the leader of the gang. He proves to be Winthrop, the ranch foreman (Philo McCullough), who Tom -- after a great deal of shootin' and ridin' -- is able to bring to justice. Blonde Ruth Hiatt, a former Hal Roach Studio comedienne, co-starred as McKee's willful niece. Directed by producer Harry S. Webb (under the pseudonym "Henri Samuels"), Ridin' Thru is the kind of cheap B-western where a character listed in the credits under one name is addressed throughout the film by another.
