Riders of the North
J.P. McGowan directed this weak Western featuring former silent cowboy Bob Custer as Sgt. Ned Stone, a Canadian Mountie searching for the villain that killed his partner. At first, Stone suspects Tom (Robert "Buddy" Shaw), the brother of Ann (Blanche Mehaffey), who runs the trading post. The latter begs the real murderers, Leclerc (George Regas) and Tim McGuire (Eddie Dunn), to clear her brother's name, but they are mostly inclined to get rid of both brother and sister. In the end, Stone is aided by a mystery man, who turns out to be the chief inspector himself (William Walling) and the true villains are brought to justice. A grateful Ann then accepts Stone's proposal of marriage. A G.A. Durlam production, Riders of the North was released by low-budget company Syndicate Pictures Corp. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Under Texas Skies
Laconic silent screen cowboy Bob Custer starred in this cheap Syndicate Film Exchange early sound Western as a wrangler falsely accused of collaborating with Mexican revolutionists. Joan Prescott (Natalie Kingston) contracts to sell her horses to the Army in general and Captain Hartford (Tom London) in particular. In cahoots with a crooked secret service agent, Hartford plans to steal the horses, blaming wrangler Tom Rankin (Custer), who he accuses of conspiring with Mexican revolutionaries. Recovering the stolen horses, Rankin reveals that he is the real Captain Hartford, and the impostor is shipped off to prison. Both Custer and Bill Cody had seen better days in the silent era and would spend the remainder of their career in very low-budget independent Westerns such as Under Texas Skies. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi
