Daredevils of the West

1943 film by John English

Daredevils of the West is a 1943 movie serial that is a lightning fast-paced, Western cliffhanger consisting of 12 chapters. The plot involves a gang of land-grabbers who try to prevent safe passage of the Foster Stage Company through frontier territory, but the story of the serial is merely a framework for the setup of numerous elaborate stunt action sequences, cliff-hanging perils, and fiery deathtraps, which the hero and heroine must fight to survive.

Directed by John English. Written by Ronald Davidson.

Dialogue edit

June Foster: Is everything loaded, Red?
Red Kelly: That's the last of 'em, Miss June. When you're ready, we'll be headed back for the camp.
June Foster: I have to wait for the stage from Pine Junction. It's bringing in some mail for Father.
Red Kelly: And here it comes, right on the minute! That's the Foster Stage Company for you.

Sheriff Watson: You can't go into Red Gulch! That's outlaw country. They'll shoot you on sight.
Red Kelly: We can shoot, too.

T.M. Sawyer: You don't suspect Higby, do you?
Duke Cameron: It isn't what I suspect, but what I can prove that counts.

Martin Dexter: The minute I got your letter, I decided to finish Foster and his stage line - once and for all.
Silas Higby: I know of no legal means you can take.
Martin Dexter: You can forget legal means. There is no law on the Comanche Strip - nothing but outlaws and Indians. That's why I can play the game my own way. And it's a big game, Higby - 500,000 acres of the finest grazing land in the entire West. That land is going to belong to me - not a bunch of tinhorn settlers following a stage road.

[Ward and his gang have captured June Foster and Red Kelly]
Barton Ward: Tie 'em up. Now the Foster stage line is going to make it's last run - over a cliff.
Turner: What shall we do with these two?
Barton Ward: Put 'em inside!

Duke Cameron: Well, June, you did it.
June Foster: You mean we did it.
