Filmed in 16 mm Kodachrome and produced by Gower Gulch company Yucca Pictures Corp., this no-budget Western featured former Republic star Sunset Carson as a rancher who comes across a wayward youngster, the Kansas Kid (Al Terry), about to drink from a poisoned spring. Unbeknownst to Sunset, the Kid is actually Bob Ward (misspelled "Wade" in the film's credits!), and he is carrying a letter implicating Carson in the death of his father. While attempting to discover the truth, Bob Ward proves himself a born prize-fighter, besting Sunset's crooked partner, Sam Webster (Bob Cason), in the ring. As it turns out, the Kid is in possession of yet another, unopened, letter that exonerates Sunset in the father's death, shifting instead the blame to Webster and his henchman, Murdock (Stephen Keyes). Produced and directed by Oliver Drake, Sunset Carson Rides Again was one of four Yucca Westerns Carson did at the tail end of his career. As film historian Don Miller so succinctly put it, "Yucca indeed!"
