Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Charles Starrett stars in the lightning-paced Columbia western Riding West. Somebody is planning to sabotage the new Pony Express mail service, and hard-ridin' Steve Jordan (Charles Starrett) aims to find out who. Though he claims to be "a peaceable man," Jordan isn't above using his fists or fanning his six-gun to rout the villains. Comedy relief is provided by Arthur Hunnicutt as snake-oil peddler Arkansas Higgins, while the "femme interest" is Shirley Patterson, whose Columbia Pictures resume extended from the first Batman serial to a few 3 Stooges and Harry Langdon 2-reelers. Of interest to country-western fans is the presence of Ernest Tubbs and his Singing Cowboys.
