Ben Brigade is a rugged bounty hunter who captures the outlaw Billy John who expects that his older brother Frank will come to his rescue before they get to Santa Cruz. Along the way, the Ben is joined by a couple of gunmen with plans of their own, as well as a buxom blonde who they rescue from a local tribe of Indians who she believes killed her husband. Unknown to everyone, Ben’s real plan is to lure in Frank, the man who killed his wife. As a story of revenge, Ride Lonesome a beautifully shot, but otherwise, typical B-Western (Klaus Ming April 2015).
