Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Buck Jones was producing as well as starring in his own western series by the time Ride 'Em Cowboy hit the screen. A heady combination of old and new, this one casts Jones as champeen auto racer Jess Burns, who reverts to his horse when called upon to rout the villains. The story comes to a thrilling conclusion as Burns, framed on a phony robbery charge, tries to elude the sheriff long enough to enter the Big Race. As in earlier Jones vehicles, the hero is an inveterate practical joker who turns serious just in time. Ride 'Em Cowboy was directed by frequent Buck Jones collaborator Lesley Selander, whose inbuilt sense of rhythm and pacing keeps this contemporary western constantly on the go.
