Tex Is Good, Movie Is Not
24 September 2009 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Rodeo racketeers running a gambling/counterfeiting operation are finding their profits dwindling due to the fact that Tex Ritter seems to win every event. Soon Tex and his sidekicks are running from a murder charge, protecting a girl and her brother from the gang and trying to put the wrap on the gang.

Without much action, this is not really one of Ritter's best outings, though he's as likable as ever, rising above the material with his breezy good-natured attitude. Though his surroundings are pretty turgid, he sails effortlessly through the movie and sings some pretty good songs.

The best scene involves Tex's card game with the villains.
