Above are Bob Baker and pretty heroine Marjorie Reynolds in a scene from WESTERN TRAILS (Universal, 1938). Reynolds was the co-star to Bing Crosby in HOLIDAY INN and in the early days of TV, she portrayed William Bendix's wife in THE LIFE OF RILEY. She was the leading lady in four of Baker's westerns - WESTERN TRAILS (Universal, 1938), BLACK BANDIT (Universal, 1938), GUILTY TRAILS (Universal, 1938) and THE PHANTOM STAGE (Universal, 1939).

Above from L-to-R are John Ridgely and Forrest Taylor, and inside the coach are Bob Baker and Marjorie Reynolds in WESTERN TRAILS (Universal, 1938). A remake of the John Wayne DAWN RIDER (Lone Star/Monogram, 1935), this is one of Baker's weakest films.

Above - Bob Baker, Constance Moore and young Dick Jones in BORDER WOLVES (Universal, 1938). She was also the heroine in Baker's THE LAST STAND (Universal, 1938). Dick Jones did a bunch of "kid" roles, but is best remembered as the saddle pal to Jock Mahoney in TV's RANGE RIDER series.  Jones later starred as BUFFALO BILL JR. on TV.  Constance Moore did a batch of A and B films, but only a few westerns (including the 1946 IN OLD SACRAMENTO with Bill Elliott). She was 'Wilma Deering' in the BUCK ROGERS cliffhanger which starred Buster Crabbe.
