Riding Shotgun

DVD review from The Movie Snob

Riding Shotgun (C-). This Randolph Scott flick was only marginally better than the other two in this three-movie collection of mine. He plays Larry DeLong, a hired gun who "rides shotgun" to protect stagecoaches from bandits. He gets tricked into leaving his post, and a stagecoach gets ambushed, and when he finally makes it into town himself, everybody in town suspects him of being a decoy sent by the robbers. Most of the movie consists of scenes where he's holed up in a bar and the townspeople are all outside wanting to lynch him. It really doesn't make much sense, but there's a decent little twist at the end that elevates this movie from a D+ to a C-.
