Above are stage driver John Ridgely and guard Forrest Taylor, and inside the coach are Bob Baker and Marjorie Reynolds. Scene from Baker's WESTERN TRAILS (Universal, 1938), a remake of the John Wayne DAWN RIDER (Lone Star/Monogram, 1935), and one of Baker's weakest films. Marjorie Reynolds also did westerns with George O'Brien, Tim Holt, Roy Rogers, Tex Ritter and Ken Maynard and was a regular in the MR. WONG and TAILSPIN TOMMY series at Monogram. Probably her most remembered roles are as the love interest to Bing Crosby in HOLIDAY INN (Paramount, 1942), and as William Bendix's wife Peg in the LIFE OF RILEY TV series which ran from 1953-1958.
