Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
The sixth of seven Western "featurettes" produced by William Pizor, The Lone Rider was created to capitalize on Silver King, a horse formerly belonging to '20s cowboy star Fred Thomson. Silver King's "leading man" in this series was Wally Wales, yet another silent screen Western hero, albeit a minor one. The two come to the rescue of prospector Fred Parker and his daughter (Marla Bratton), whose mine is wanted by outlaws Franklyn Farnum, Sherry Tansey, and Barney Beasley. At 27 minutes, The Lone Rider was the longest of the seven Silver King "featurettes." The series was written by Al Lane, himself a former B-Western hero, photographed by Brydon Baker, and edited by Arthur Cohen. It was distributed by Gower Gulch company Imperial as a supplement to low-budget Western features.
