Originally produced by Republic Pictures, the Red Ryder movies were based on the character created by Fred Harman for his newspaper comic strip, which ran from 1938 to 1964. Legend has it that Red Ryder and his faithful sidekick Little Beaver would go wherever needed, to defend the innocent, bring crooks to justice and restore the peace. There’s plenty of double-barreled action in this double-feature starring Wild Bill Elliott as the Red Ryder and Bobby Blake as Little Beaver. In the first part of our double-bill, SAN ANTONIO KID (1944), greedy outlaws in pursuit of the coveted “black gold”, frighten local ranchers into leaving their homesteads in order that they might buy up all the valuable land. Red Ryder comes to their aid. In the second half of the double-bill, CHEYENNE WILDCAT (1947), Red Ryder is the unwilling object-of-desire caught between the love of two different ladies, but he still finds the time to outwit a gang of ornery outlaws.
Special features include a photo gallery, actors bios, original adventures trailer and Dolby digital mono.
