Produced and directed by Ward Lascelle, this very minor western starred Lester Cuneo, a veteran western player who liked to bill himself as "The Smiling Daredevil." Cuneo made a series of six small-scale oaters for Lascelle, all geared to the less demanding audiences of the hinterlands. In reviewing one of these no-budget efforts, Variety's critic best summed up the prevailing sentiment: "Poor Lester!" Sadly, Cuneo took such criticism to heart and committed suicide less than a year after releasing The Ridin' Fool.
