Winners of the West:
This 13-chapter western cliffhanger from Universal borrowed footage from earlier Johnny Mack Brown and Buck Jones serials but also relied on the talents of matinee idol Dick Foran, 'The Singing Cowboy,' a big star for Warner Bros. and their answer to Gene Autry. Fighting to advance the great Hartford Transcontinental Railroad through Hell's Gate Pass, tough railroader Jeff Ramsey (Dick Foran) is blocked by King Carter (Harry Woods), the self-styled ruler of the prairie domain beyond the pass. Spurred on by Carter, the local Indians hold up stage coaches, pirate wagon supply trains, drive surveying men to seek shelter and burn down the telegraph station, making it all the tougher to get the train through.

BATTLING WITH BUFFALO BILL:
Gold is discovered in a small western town and the local gambler Jim Rodney plans to seize the strike by having the townspeople murdered or frightened away by Indians. To put his plan in motion, Rodney has an Indian woman murdered and steals the horses. When "Buffalo Bill" Cody and the US Cavalry appear things get a bit tricky. Rodney then goes to the second plan to have himself elected as town marshal. Of course, the election is rigged and Cody then takes on the task of bringing Rodney to justice - while still fighting off the attacks by the Indians

THE LAST FRONTIER:
In this wild west opus, Creighton Chaney (better known as Lon Chaney, Jr.) plays a masked avenger who breaks up a plan, hatched by a gang of no-goods, to supply guns to the local Indians and thus makes the last frontier a fit place for decent folks to live. The Last Frontier was the only serial ever released by RKO Radio Pictures, a studio better known for Fred Astaire and Orson Welles than for rough-n-tumble western adventures.
