Overview

Synopsis

The Pal from Texas
The fifth of eight Metropolitan Bob Steele B-Westerns, The Pal From Texas featured the diminutive screen cowboy attempting to prevent old prospector pal (Josef Swickard) from being swindled by an unscrupulous tavern owner (Ted Adams). When the friend, Texas, is found murdered, suspicion immediately falls on Bob. Even Texas' niece, Alice (Claire Rochelle), believes Bob to be the killer. With the sheriff (Jack Perrin) and his posse close behind, Bob manages to unearth enough evidence to convict the tavern owner and his gang of racketeering and murder. With his innocence firmly established, Bob proposes to Alice. A blond starlet who often portrayed brassy dames, Claire Rochelle was Bob Steele's leading lady in four Westerns from 1937-1939. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

The Rider of the Law
An average entry in Bob Steele's Western series for Supreme Pictures, The Rider of the Law casts the diminutive star as Bob Marlow, an Arizona lawman trailing the six Tolliver brothers, a gang of outlaws engaged in blackmailing the local banker in Apache City. To get the goods on the brothers, Marlow disguises himself as a foppish Easterner, thus gaining access to the gang's mountain hideout. The shooting starts when Marlow's true identity is revealed. Former child star Gertrude Messinger plays the heroine and the six outlaws are portrayed by Earl Dwire, Chuck Baldra, Sherry Tansey, Tex Palmer, Steve Clark, and Jack Kirk, experienced blackguards all. Robert North Bradbury, Steele's real-life father, directs as usual. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
