In this one of his many well-made but routine FBO Westerns, Tom Tyler played a federal agent impersonating "The Raven" (Harry Woods), a dying outlaw, in order to infiltrate a notorious gang. Allowing the local parson (Charles Thurston) to conduct services at a tavern, Tyler incurs the wrath of crime lords Harry O'Connor and Bill Nestel, who frame him in a holdup. The lawman, however, gets out of the jam with the assistance of pretty Jane Reid and her plucky kid brother (Frankie Darro). Tyler and Darro made a fine team and were paired many times by the studio, whose Westerns always appealed mainly to the young at heart. When the Law Rides was written by future director Oliver Drake.
