Trivia

Even though Tim Holt co-stars in this movie, George O'Brien is the star and the hero. O'Brien was a very popular western hero during the 1930s and 1940s, and he eventually received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Ironically, Tim Holt was never given this same honor, in spite of the 30+ westerns he made, including his role in The Treasure of Sierra Madre. See more »

Renegade Ranger, The (1938)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

A couple Texas Rangers (George O'Brien/Tim Holt) are hired to bring in a ranch owner (Rita Hayworth) who is raging a battle against the government over land stolen from ranchers. She's painted as a murderer but really she's just acting as a Robin Hood type. Even at 60-minutes this RKO Western is deadly dull without any excitement. There are your typical fist fights and shoot outs but all of them are deadly dry as is the relationship between O'Brien and Hayworth. The only saving grace is Holt in his supporting role and Hayworth is somewhat interesting.
