Looks glossy for a production that was only budgeted for $10,000.

Audience Reviews for Riders of Destiny

One of and endless series of John Wayne "B" westerns he made in the 1930's. This one is a little better than most, still, nothing special at all in any way. Poorly acted. John Wayne's acting did improve in time, but he was never a great actor, Oscar or no Oscar.

James Higgins

One of John Wayne's very few "singing cowboy" pictures. Seriously, out of nowhere, he just bursts into song! And the truly hilarious part is that it's not even Duke singing! It's some other guy singing while Duke moves his lips to the words and pretends to play the guitar! And you know what a distinctive, recognizable voice John Wayne has, right? Well, let's just say that the result is about as convincing as James Earl Jones lip syncing to Clay Aiken!

Christopher Poole

Badguy Kincaid controls the local water supply and plans to do in the other ranchers. Government agent Saunders shows up undercover to do in Kincaid and win the heart of one of his victims Fay Denton.
