With Silver City Raiders, perennial western sidekick Russell Hayden launched his own starring series. Hayden plays "Lucky", the same character he'd previously essayed in the Hopalong Cassidy films. This time around, Lucky tries to prove that crooked land baron Dawson (Paul Sutton) doesn't have prior claim on the entire territory. When legal methods prove only moderately effective, Lucky and his chums use more direct methods to drive Dawson and his ilk out of town. The film is highlighted by what must be the more unrealistically bloodless gun duel in screen history. Supporting Russell Hayden are two carryovers from Columbia's Charles Starrett series, Dub "Cannonball" Taylor and Bob Wills.
