Overland Stagecoach is a 1942 American Western film directed by Sam Newfield and written by Fred Myton. The film stars Robert Livingston as the Lone Rider, Al St. John as his sidekick "Fuzzy" Jones, and Dennis Moore as Sheriff Smoky Moore, with Julie Duncan, Glenn Strange and Ted Adams. The film was released on October 11, 1942, by Producers Releasing Corporation.
"Fuzzy" Jones gets a job as a driver for the Pioneer Stagecoach Company, and he learns that the stagecoach company's owners, Jeff Clark and Harland Kent, are opposing the construction of a new railroad line through the area. Jeff Clark is killed in a gunfight with some outlaws. Before he dies, he tells "Fuzzy" to send for his daughter, Susan, who is also a partner in the stage line. Little does anyone know that Kent was actually behind Jeff's murder.
Now with Jeff out of the way, Kent is scheming to steal Susan's share of the company. "Fuzzy" becomes suspicious and sends for his friend, Tom Cameron/ The Lone Rider. Smoky Moore, foreman of the proposed railroad company, is also a friend of Fuzzy's. Susan arrives in town, actually driving the stagecoach herself. Kent has his henchmen sabotage both the railroad company and the stagecoach company, and each side is blaming the other. The Lone Rider and "Fuzzy" try to find who is really causing all the trouble. It's not long before Kent frames the Lone Rider and Fuzzy for murder, forcing the two heroes to become fugitives from the law.
