Plot

Tom 'Cheyenne Tommy' Wade (Tom Tyler), is a lawman who poses as a gang member in an attempt to expose Girard (Lon Chaney Jr.), a fraudulent cattle thief. He steals one thousand dollars from the thief, promising to return it if he can join the gang, while plotting a way to expose them as thieves.

  • Reception

    Reception for Cheyenne Rides Again was generally positive. Film historian Hal J. Wollstein wrote that: "The Katzman stamp of poverty is all over this Victory Pictures production, but it is fun to watch Tyler and Chaney, both of whom would later star as the mummy, Kharis, for Universal in the '40s." TV Guide offered that while the film was not very good, Tom Tyler's character kept the film moving.

    Release

    The film aired on television on January 9, 1965 as one of the many western films shared on The Wild Bill Elliott Show. Alpha Video released Cheyenne Rides Again on DVD on April 27, 2010.
