WEST OF THE LAW (Monogram, 1942) was the finale of the Rough Riders series and was one of the weaker entries. On a positive note, the villains included Harry Woods and Roy Barcroft. See photo below.

Above is a scene still from the RIDERS OF THE WEST (Monogram, 1942). From left to right are Christine McIntyre, Sarah Padden, Raymond Hatton (white coat), Harry Woods (without his usual moustache), Walter McGrail, Buck Jones (sitting on desk), and Bud Osborne. Dennis Moore is kneeling over the floored Robert Frazer. Christine McIntyre was the resident leading lady in the Columbia Pictures short subjects unit, and is best remembered for her work in about three dozen two-reelers starring the Three Stooges.
