(From Old Corral collection)

THE LAW RIDES AGAIN (Monogram, 1943) was the second of the Monogram Trail Blazers series, and starred Ken Maynard and Hoot Gibson.  Kenneth Harlan portrays a crooked Indian Agent who is keeping promised cattle shipments from the Indians.  And he's assisted by B-movie vet Jack La Rue (as an escaped convict) and other Harlan henchies were Hank Bell, John Merton and Chief Thunder Cloud.  In the above lobby card and crop/blowup, Artie Ortego is top center wearing the full headdress and has his bow and arrow at rest.  Chief Many Treaties (Bill Hazlett) as 'Chief Barking Fox' is wearing the full headdress and is on the right. At the bottom center of this lobby card - and aiming the rifle - is Augie Gomez. The other players are unidentified.
