"Retired marshal Buck Roberts (Buck Jones) has left law enforcement and is enjoying life on his northern Arizona ranch when he receives a telegram from Marshall Bat Madison (Jay Wilsey) requesting his aid in stopping a rash of stagecoach robberies near villain invested Mesa City, and off he goes as a fast-paced Rough Riders (Jones, Tim McCoy, Raymond Hatton) adventure begins. Representing the forces of good against the forces of evil in this Monogram series, the three stalwarts have arrived separately and apparently unknown to each other into the plagued town, Roberts as a cattlebuyer, Hatton as Sandy Hopkins, a cattledealer, and McCoy as Parson McCall, an itinerant preacher, and quickly come up against Steve Taggart (Tristram Coffin), the ringleader of the bandit gang they seek. Roberts volunteers as a stage driver for the company owned by Ruth Masters (Luana Walters), is framed with the responsibility for the holdups transferred to him, and it falls to the other two Riders to rescue their jailed comrade, and to give Jones, aboard his splendid steed Silver, an opportunity to display his riding and stunt ability in one of his final appearances before his untimely death in Boston's Coconut Grove fire the following year. Although this film does not receive strong direction, the cast and crew perform their duties very well indeed, with Slim Whitaker in his accustomed role as evil henchman, and the rugged Jones and hard-eyed McCoy as usual seem more than capable of handling any adverse situation that might present itself.

"This is the first of an excellent series starring Buck Jones, Tim McCoy, and Raymond Hatton, who play U. S. marshals who come to the aid of a stagecoach owner whose stages are being constantly robbed. Called the "Roughriders" they usually ride in from different locales to aid the oppressed. Excellent performances by all. Series ended following year when Buck was killed in the tragic nightclub fire in Boston and McCoy later left for service in WWII."
