Doesn't compare with better crafted "B" Westerns.

"A staggeringly corny work made with a miniscule budget, this is one of four westerns produced by deservedly little-known Yucca Pictures, and features glyphic Sunset Carson playing himself in his customary fashion, i.e., a discomposed delivery of dialogue when not sitting atop a horse - which he does with surety - the plot presenting Al Terry as Bob Ward (listed as Wade in the titular credits) seeking to avenge the murder of his father, apparently the work of the eponymous hero. Filmed in colour, uncommon for the period and genre, the movie is cumbered by pitiable production values, as well as possibly the most embarrassingly poor stunt work to be found in a professional effort, yet includes in its cast some capable character actors, including a winsome Pat Starling whose clear soprano graces a duet with Terry, and a viewer must be glad indeed that several musical novelty numbers are presented featuring gifted fiddler Buddy McDowell.
A hell of lot more fun than I expected it to be

"The films that Sunset Carson made for Yucca pictures are legendary for being less impressive than the films he made for Republic. This is the first Yucca film I've seen, but it's obvious that everything I'd read about Yucca was largely true. Sunset clearly had a lot less to work with than he did previously at Republic and this is a very cheaply made flick. Sunset Carson Rides Again has it's charm though. Sunset himself still shines. It's is a very low budget affair, but it is surprisingly fun for a cheaply made old cowboy picture. There's plenty to enjoy here if you are a fan of old low budget flicks like I am. The low budget only adds to the charm and you can't beat the price of the DVD. Rides Again definitely provides this low budget flick fan with FUN cheap thrills. I gotta love it!"
