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 »
Sad to say if it were not for the presence of Rita Hayworth as the outlaw queen in this film, The Renegade Ranger would be sadly forgotten today. As it is it's not a bad B western from RKO and it featured the guy who would be that studio's B picture cowboy hero Tim Holt.
George O'Brien stars in The Renegade Ranger and he's gone undercover to arrest Rita Hayworth. She's the descendant of former a Spanish land grant family and she and her tenants are being cheated systematically by crooked politicians. But he's got a complication he didn't figure on. Former Texas Ranger Tim Holt who is in fact the title character has turned outlaw and has joined Hayworth. He doesn't give O'Brien away, but in fact he convinces O'Brien to start investigating the corrupt land grabbing politicians in the region.
The film is a well constructed and well plotted B film. In the Citadel Series Films of Rita Hayworth, George O'Brien said that Rita was a promising newcomer who was eager to learn and took advice and criticism well. Everyone knew she was headed for bigger and better things.
And she certainly was.
