The Cheyenne Kid

The first of six Jack Randall Westerns directed by Monogram studio hack Raymond K. Johnson, The Cheyenne Kid presented the handsome but ineffective Randall as the title character, a gambler turned ranch foreman. Cheyenne quickly earns the enmity of Baker (Reed Howes), a fellow gambler who does his best to prevent the newcomer from buying a herd of cattle from Ruth Adams (Louise Stanley) and her brother, Chet (Kenne Duncan). The latter owes Baker a large gambling debt and Baker has designs on the Adams' Lazy A Ranch. Aided by sidekicks Manuel (Frank Yaconelli) and Farnum (Edward Brady), Cheyenne sets a trap for Baker who is soon arrested by the sheriff (Forrest Taylor). The rotund Yaconelli, perhaps the best of Randall's varying sidekicks, returned to the series after a two-picture absence, as did Louise Stanley, Randall's wife in real life. It didn't much matter; the Randall series as well as Randall himself were headed for oblivion.
