Forbidden Trails is one of the best of the Rough Rider series. The three stars, Buck Jones, Tim McCoy and Raymond Hatten, each give stellar performances. The stars on screen individually provides the viewer with the years of acting experience of Buck, Tim and Sandy (Hatton).The music provides a great climax. One of the best.

This is one of 6 or 7 "Rough Riders movies made near the end of the Cowboy Careers of McCoy,Jones and Hatton. I have and seen them all. These, for their day were action films and very popular. I still enjoy Buck Jones.You had to have been there at a Saturday Matinee. I collect and have seen many old favourites.

Forbidden Trails, 1941 film

The film starts at a prison yard in a city. Two men, Fulton and Howard, are being released. They will go west to Yucca City. They read about the retirement of Marshal Buck Roberts. Jim Cramer doesn't need any partners in his freighting business. We learn about these men's past. A local businessman gives money to the two men. There is a popular song for entertainment. We meet Buck Roberts. A letter is sent to Buck to lure him to an isolated cabin for an ambush! Buck escapes from this fire with the help of his horse "Trooper". Elsewhere Sandy is getting married until he gets a telegram. Tim and Sandy will go to Yucca City, they are unknown there. "Ace Porter" from Santa Fe arrives to sit in a poker game. Sandy Hopkins delivers the freight. "Ace" is very lucky at cards! "Ace" knows how to deal faro.

Tim plans to string along with Ed Nelson to learn the situation. Hopkins plays along with Fulton and Howard. There is a dramatic confrontation, and Buck appears in the tavern. Cramer is worried. There is a plan to ship the high-grade ore out of town a day early. There is a clever plot to kill Buck and rob the ore shipment. Can "Ace" and Sandy warn Buck of the ambush? Yes, and they have a new scheme to fool the villains. The villains catch up to Cramer and get the partnership contract signed. Then there is a big surprise! The crooks are caught. There will be a happy ending. The "Rough Riders" go their separate ways, but they will ride together again.

This movie starts out like an average western but has some interesting plot twists to keep your interest. In November 1942 Buck Jones attended a football game in Boston. Afterwards, he and hundreds of other people went to the "Cocoanut Grove", a popular nightclub. A fire broke out and quickly spread. Over four hundred people were trapped and killed! The fire codes were never enforced because of political corruption. The cabin fire in this movie was a strange coincidence.
