Royal Rider is an amusing mixture of traditional western fare and Ruritanian melodrama. Ken Maynard plays Dick Scott, a rodeo star who takes his Wild West show to the mythical kingdom of Alvania. Here he becomes pals with the country's boy-king Michael (Philipe De Lacey). Inevitably, our hero protects the young monarch from scheming revolutionaries, led by the duplicitous Alvanian prime minister (Theodore Lorch). Olive Hasbrouck co-stars as Ruth Elliot -- King Michael's governess and Dick Scott's love interest. The basic premise of Royal Rider was entertainingly retreaded by Tom Mix in 1932's My Pal the King.
