The Last Ride was also the last production to emanate from Warner Bros.' B-picture division. The plot involves the illicit wartime market in stolen tires (rubber was, of course, a priority), with Richard Travis and Charles Lang as Pat and Mike Harrigan, brothers on the opposite sides of the law. Borrowing a few elements from the 1936 Warners film Bullets or Ballots, police detective Pat Harrigan is dishonorably discharged from the force, but it's merely a ploy to bring the black-market tire thieves out in the open. The plan hinges on whether or not Pat can convince Mike to turn honest before the final reel. Eleanor Parker plays Kitty Kelly, whose primary function in the film is to get kidnapped during the climactic showdown. The Last Ride was directed by D. Ross Lederman, whose legendary ability to match new footage with old stock shots is given quite a workout here.
