The Law Rides
Director Robert N. Bradbury puts his cowboy-star son Bob Steele through the customary paces in The Law Rides. The key to a series of murders is the gold coins left at the scene of each crime. It appears for a while as though "battling Bob" is responsible for the killings. He isn't, and it's not long before he ascertains who is. Bob Steele's leading lady in The Law Rides is the winsome Harlene Wood, who here as elsewhere is a lot better than her material. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Smokey Smith
Bob Steele goes in search of the outlaw who killed both his parents and stole a valuable ring in this pedestrian western from producer A.W. Hackle's ramshackle Supreme Pictures Corp. Left to die in the desert, Smokey Smith (Steele) is nursed back to health by the sheriff of Pecos, John Law (Earl Dwire), who makes him his deputy. But Smokey is determined to find his parents' killer and surreptitiously joins a gang of stage robbers. Lead by Blaze Bart (George "Gabby" Hayes), who is determined to "earn" enough to send his foster-daughter Bess (Mary Kornman) back East, the gang is feuding with outlaw Kent (Warner P. Richmond), the very man Smokey is hunting. Kent murders Blaze but is himself killed by Smokey, who manages to reach the gang's mounted machine gun in time to save both Bess and the sheriff's posse. Smokey Smith was remade by low-budget Lippert Prod. as Crooked River (1950), a vehicle for down-on-their-luck former western stars James Ellison and Russell Hayden. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
