Storyline

The Night Riders  Talbot uses a phony land grant to rule thirteen million acres, taxing everyone heavily and evicting those who won’t pay. The Three Mesquiteers becomes mysterious “night riders” to fight this evil.

The Mark Of Los Capaqueros

 

The Night Riders  Confession: I nearly always find early b-Westerns more or less enjoyable, there’s usually a lot of pleasant easy familiarity and a lot of dated stuff that can or should be forgiven. Just switch off the analysin’. John Wayne made approximately one million of these swift potboilers before he made his name – the same year as Night Riders. Even good old Gene Autry didn’t make as many.

Baddies forge old document proving the legality of their claim to thirteen million acres of land – they promise fairness to the tenants but deliver harshness, endless taxes and death instead. How very like all politicians always! Wayne and his two sidekicks object to this and begin a fightback as mysterious caped crusaders – Los Capaqueros replacing The Three Mesquiteers. It’s the usual stuff, sub-Zorro fisticuffs and shootouts complete with self conscious melodrama: therefore all I’d hoped for, nothing more. Wayne’s cohorts Ray Corrigan and Max Terhune kept on mining the b-picture vein throughout the ’40’s while Wayne began his climb to superstardom and the making of many movie classics. Highly enjoyable non-serious time-filler!

Three Mesquiteers Play Robin Hood

 
Duke, Ray, and Max ride into action when their ranch, along with their neighbor’s ranches are hoodwinked by card shark Talbot. A hand well played by George Douglas. Kermit Maynard is hog tied by the shifty Talbot. He even has beautiful Ruth Rogers befuddled by his shenanigans. Stony and the boys are caught in the crossfire between the fired up town folk and Talbot’s army to hunt them down. Even though they had supporting roles it was good to see entertainment stalwarts Tom Tyler and Sammy McKim. Night Riders is fine offering from Republic with many classic western stars.
