California Gold Rush (1946)
The Duchess Alice Fleming is out in California visiting again when a series of robberies starts plaguing the stagecoach line of Russell Simpson and his daughter Peggy Stewart. Naturally she sends for her favorite nephew Red Ryder and his young companion Little Beaver.

The way it works out is Red Ryder winds up posing as the Idaho Kid posing as Red Ryder. All in the line of finding out who the crooks are who sent for the real Idaho Kid to bushwhack Red and take his place. That was a foolish mistake.

But it almost works too good and Bill Elliott has to do some fast thinking. Little Beaver actually proves most helpful here.

Another of Repblic's cowboy heroes Monte Hale has a small role as a stagecoach driver. This one should satisfy all those former matinée kids from the 40s who used to pay ten cents to watch all the Republic cowboys on Saturday afternoon.
