Cattle Raiders is a standard-issue Charles Starrett western, right down to the usual supporting players (Iris Meredith, Dick Curtis, Edward LeSaint et. al.) Once again, Starrett (this time going by the name of Tom Reynolds) is forced to clear himself of a murder charge. This he does in record time, with barely a scratch on his face or a wrinkle in his clothes. It is giving away absolutely nothing to reveal that the genuine killer is played by Dick Curtis, who spent most of the 1930s and 1940s duking it out with Starrett in one western after another. Between action highlights, Donald "Slim" Grayson and the Sons of the Pioneers offer several westernized tunes, including the amusingly wry "This Ain't the Same Old Range."
