The Red Rider is a 1934 American Western film serial from Universal Pictures and starring Buck Jones. It has 15 chapters based on the short story "The Redhead from Sun Dog" by W. C. Tuttle, and is a remake of Buck Jones' earlier 1931 film The Range Feud.
Sheriff "Red" Davison (Buck Jones), the sheriff of Sun Dog, is shocked when he hears his good friend "Silent" Slade (Grant Withers) has been accused of murdering a man named Scotty McKee (J.P. McGowan). He feels that Slade was framed and denied a fair trial. When Slade is sentenced to hang, Red allows him to escape from jail, sacrificing his job and his good reputation in the process. Red and his horse Silver then follow Slade in an attempt to aid him in proving his innocence.
The Red Rider was based on the short story "The Redhead from Sun Dog" by W. C. Tuttle.
