Riders of Destiny (1933)

John Wayne, Cecilia Parker
Robert N. Bradbury
Musical, Western
John Wayne sings! Well, not really. His voice was dubbed here, but as Singin’ Sandy Saunders he’s still able to write the code of justice with a blazing six­gun! He’s a government agent out to help a group of ranchers in their battle with a villain who is tying up local water rights. Also starring Gabby Hayes, Al St. John, Yakima Canutt, and Cecilia Parker, Riders of Destiny was filmed early in Wayne’s career – it was his first for Lone Star ­ but the unmistakable swagger is already in place!
