The fourth of eight ramshackle Bob Steele oaters ground out by Metropolitan Pictures 1939-1940, Riders of the Sage joined the growing list of B-Westerns dealing with the cattle rancher vs. homesteader problem. The site of the trouble this time is Apache Basin, into which rides innocent Bob Burke (Steele). Bob soon joins the forces of homesteader Jim Martin, whose son, Tom (Dave O'Brien), has been kidnapped by the nasty Halsey brothers: Luke (Carleton Young) and Hank (Earl Douglas). With the help of Poe Powers (Ted Adams), a Robin Hood-like masked outlaw and the leader of the legendary "Riders of the Sage," Bob gets the goods on the Halseys and peace is soon restored. Despite the always welcome sight of Steele, Dave O'Brien, and leading lady Claire Rochelle (as the Halseys' rebellious sister), Riders of the Sage was soundly defeated by producer/director Harry S. Webb's slipshod production methods. As he had in the previous Steele entry, Mesquite Buckaroo (1939), villain Carleton Young billed himself as Gordon Roberts. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
The Sunrise Trail
Bob Steele rides the Sunrise Trail in this dusty "B"-western. Ostensibly an outlaw, Steele is actually an undercover operative for the local constabulary. He joins up with a gang of rustlers for the purpose of bringing the crooks to justice. Along the way, he falls for golden-hearted saloon gal Blanche Mehaffey. Both hero and heroine are exposed to deadly dangers before "our Bob" (as he was designated by the trade papers) is able to deliver the villains to the sheriff. Befitting the hero's pugnacious nature, there's a fight in every other reel of Sunrise Trail. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
