Law of the Rio Grande
Wolf Hardy (Nelson McDowell), the wounded leader of an outlaw gang, takes great pains to insure that his young protégé, Phil "The Cub" Norris (Bob Custer), will return to the straight and narrow. The hot-headed Norris is almost convinced to join a gang headed by the notorious Blanco Kid (Edmund Cobb), but he is persuaded otherwise by Blanco's bride-to-be, Judy Lanning (Betty Mack). Norris rescues the pretty girl from her brutal boyfriend and is offered a job by her father (Carlton King) in gratitude. Blanco threatens to reveal the former outlaw's past, but a recovered Hardy intervenes. Two former silent screen cowboys -- Custer and Cobb -- came face-to-face in this above-average low-budget oater produced by Harry S. Webb and Flora E. Douglas for release by the redoubtable Syndicate Film Exchange, a forerunner to Poverty Row company Monogram. Nearing the end of his screen career, Custer was a bit long in the tooth to play someone's young protégé. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Quick Trigger Lee
Produced by cameraman Burton King for ill-named Poverty Row company Big 4 Film Corp., this western starred laconic silent screen cowboy Bob Custer in the title role. Quick Trigger is on his way to help a beleaguered old prospector who, because of bad eyesight, has signed a crooked I.O.U. The nasty Waleses, father and son (Monte Montague and Leander de Cordova), are waiting to ambush him when they are all interrupted by a movie crew filming a Western. Quick Trigger manages to romance the company's leading lady (Caryl Lincoln), while at the same time defeating the nasty Wales gang, who are soon enough carted off to jail. The movie actress turns out to be the old prospector's long-lost niece, and she's more than ready to leave her glamorous life for marriage to a handsome cowboy like Quick Trigger Lee. Offscreen, Caryl Lincoln was married to actor Byron Stevens and thus the sister-in-law of Barbara Stanwyck. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
