Did You Know?


When Rocky Lane arrived in town and filled Sheriff Walters in on how his money pouch was stolen, they watch as Cricket Adams goes into a store across the street from the jail. The sheriff states that they could go out to Cricket's farm to look for the strongbox that the outlaws probably hid there. However Rocky was a stranger to Durango and didn't know any of it's residents, while the sheriff couldn't know Rocky was referring to Cricket's farm. See more »

Excellent cast with excellent script: Republic quality
14 December 2014 | by morrisonhimselfSee all my reviews

Rocky Lane looked good on a horse. For that matter, he looked good in any setting.

Aline Towne was a good-looking and capable actress, and it's too bad we don't have more performances by her.

Walter Baldwin was simply great as the cantankerous uncle who dislikes the "pipsqueak" sheriff, ably played by Ross Ford, who is not very well known today but should be.

The script by M. Coates Webster is far above average, with excellent dialog in a good story.

Republic had its usual superlative action well directed by Fred C. Brannon and performed by the usual great stuntmen.

I saw this at YouTube in December of 2014 and again had the problem of too dark a picture. But that's my only complaint.

I highly recommend "Rough Riders of Durango" and am grateful to all the people responsible for its being available.
