BOB STEELE WESTERNS #8

SET #8

THE RIDER AND THE LAW

An apparently lost entry in the long-running Bob Steele Western series, The Rider of the Law presented the diminutive Steele as an Arizona lawman trailing the Tolliver brothers, a gang of outlaws. Steele catches up with the brothers in Apache City, where they are blackmailing the local bank president. As he has done so many times before, our hero then engages in a bit of subterfuge by pretending to be an Easterner. Thus catching the Tollivers off guard, he manages to discover their mountain hideout and there is a final shootout.

THE RED ROPE

Bob Steele stars as Tom Shaw, the courageous foreman of the ranch owned by Betty Duncan (Lois January). A group of mysterious riders, apparently determined to drive every cattle rancher out of the territory, has launched a bloody campaign of terror, leaving behind a handful of spent shells and a red-stained rope as a warning to the ranchers. The leader of the terrorists is Rattler Haynes (Lew Meehan), but Tom suspects that Rattler takes his orders from a never-seen "Mister Big." With a little diligence and plenty of fisticuffs, our hero outmaneuvers the villains and wins the girl. Based on a story by Johnston McCulley (of The Mark of Zorro fame), The Red Rope was one of the best Bob Steele westerns ever made

BILLY THE KID?S RANGE WAR

Bob Steele plays the title. The script contrives to have honest Billy falsely accused of a series of killings. The actual murderers are trying to sabotage an under-construction stagecoach road. Hiring on as a stage driver, Billy not only clears his name but corrals the crooks. He also exposes the brains behind the scheme, who turns out to be a supposedly respectable peacekeeper.

MESQUITE BUCKAROO

Steele plays Bob Allen of the Bar A Ranch, whose Aunt Sarah (Juanita Fletcher) bets her neighbor (Frank LaRue) that Bob will win the rodeo against the Circle B's Luke Williams (Ted Adams). Realizing they can make a fortune if the reigning champion, Bob, loses, a couple of crooks indulge in a bit of kidnapping. About to be disqualified for tardiness, Bob, who has overpowered his captors, arrives just in time to beat the competition.
