Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
Filmed on-location at Lone Pine, CA, and thus looking a lot better than the average cheapie Western, Cheyenne Cyclone was the second of eight sagebrush thrillers produced by Willis Kent and starring former Paramount cowboy Lane Chandler and his horse Raven. Chandler and Connie Lamont played travelling stock company actors who find themselves stranded in a Western town. A former cowpuncher, Chandler obtains a job at the failing Lost River Ranch and helps the owner and his granddaughter (Marie Quillan) fight off a gang of cattle rustlers. Lamont switches sides and becomes the mistress of one of the rustlers, but Chandler manages to bring the entire gang to justice in the final reel. Chandler, who always considered producer Willis Kent "a prince," never quite made it as a B-Western star. Increasingly gaunt-looking, he made the switch to villainy with ease and enjoyed a career that lasted well into the television era. Cheyenne Cyclone was later reissued under the rather more appropriate title Rustler's Ranch.
