Filmed partially on location in Arkansas, this silent western was one of eight produced by Morris R. Schlank and directed by J.P. McGowan. In order to cash in on Universal's popular Jack Hoxie, Schlank hired Hoxie's half-brother, Alton Stone, and without missing a beat renamed the youngster Al Hoxie. In Riding Romance, Hoxie prevents rancher's daughter Marjorie Bonner from marrying a scoundrel in order to save her ranch. As it turns out, Bonner's unscrupulous suitor is also the man who railroaded her brother in a rustling scheme. The sister of Priscilla Bonner, Marjorie Bonner was a decided step up from the amateur actresses usually cast in cheap Westerns in the '20s. The rest of the supporting cast was equally above-average and included Arthur Morrison, Steve Clemente, and stunt-man Cliff Lyons.
