On the far left is Yakima Canutt portraying "Otah", a bad Indian.  In the center, wearing the vest and cowboy hat is Roger Williams, who plays Rutledge, the other main baddie.  Max Terhune, Ray 'Crash' Corrigan and Bob Livingston are also shown in this scene from RIDERS OF THE WHISTLING SKULL (Republic, 1937), the fourth film in the Three Mesquiteers series, and one of many films in which Canutt portrayed a baddie/henchie.

Above - transferring to the rear of the stage is probably stuntman Cliff Lyons, doubling for Johnny Mack Brown, in a scene from Brown's first series oater at Universal, DESPERATE TRAILS (Universal, 1939). Does the moustached stage driver look familiar? Take a gander at the crop/blowup of that driver's face ... and think Yakima Canutt whose many talents included handling the reins of a wagon or stage.

Above from L-to-R are Jack Kirk (driving the wagon) while Roy Rogers has Yakima Canutt and Pascale Perry under his six-gun in this crop from a lobby card from BAD MAN OF DEADWOOD (Republic, 1941).

Above is Canutt stunting for Tom Tyler in the Three Mesquiteers adventure, CODE OF THE OUTLAW (Republic, 1942). Canutt was around 46-47 years of age when this oater was filmed.
