Wagon Wheels Westward (1945) as Sheriff John Brown
While not exact remakes, two 1945 westerns - Republic's Wagon Wheels Westward and Monogram's Springtime in Texas - are close enough to the plot of Universal's 1943 Cheyenne Roundup to be labeled next-of-kin versions. Republic's offering finds The Duchess (Alice Fleming) and her nephew Red Ryder (Bill Elliott as Wild Bill Elliott) setting out to pioneer a new stagecoach line through the wild, rough country leading to Desert Springs, a small, isolated town. To ensure the customer base for the new line, they are bringing with them a wagon train of prospective settlers who want land of their own and have the cash to pay for it. Red and the Duchess are unaware that their letter to John Larkin (Bob McKenzie), the hotel owner and land agent in Desert Springs, has been intercepted by Dave McKean (Roy Barcroft) and his henchmen. McKean has intentions of letting Larkin complete the land deals and then he and his gang will steal the money. Arriving in Desert Springs, McKean & Co. are startled to find the town completely deserted (because of a rumored gold strike elsewhere), with signs that all of the citizens pulled out in a hurry. Seeing this as even a better opportunity, McKean sets himself and his men up as the town's officials and await the arrival of the prospective pigeons. An added subplot involves newly-wed Arlie Adams (Linda Stirling), a member of the wagon train, being blackmailed by Lunsford (George J.

The concerned Red thinks everything is okay until he sees Champneys mistreating Red's horse, Thunder, and he then decides to investigate Champneys because, as he tells Little Beaver, no true Englishman would mistreat a horse.
