Stoney's brother in a jackpot
19 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Range Defenders finds the Three Mesquiteers trying to defend Stoney's brother George played by future TV director Thomas Carr from a murder charge. Carr is a small rancher and he's accused of killing the owner of the Ponderosa of sheep spreads. He's on the lam (no pun intended) and looking for brother Bob Livingston and his fellow Mesquiteers Ray Corrigan and Max Terhune to help him out of the jackpot he's in.

The real murderer is lawyer and perennial western villain Harry Woods who now controls the estate for Eleanor Stewart. He's also the political boss of the area with crooked sheriff Earl Hdodgins on the pad. And Hodgins is up for election and Woods is determined to have a good Chicago style election to get him back in.

I always love seeing Earl Hodgins he was always playing engaging rogue types on either side of the law. Having Elmer the dummy get the better of him in a political debate was truly precious.

Three Mesquiteer fans of all ages will like this.
