Okay Tex Ritter Vehicle
17 January 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

Ritter plays a Texas Ranger who comes to the aid of a group of cattlemen who've found themselves in the middle of a vicious land war with ruthless sheep farmers (You heard it right!) and of one landowner in particular who finds himself framed for murder by the sheep men and by his own half-brother, who's in their back-pocket.

Though not the best of Tex's vehicles, It's an alright way to pass an hour, with the requisite amount of action and music, though not as much of the latter as I'd have liked. The title song is pretty good.

Once again, there's a great, rowdy saloon fight between Ritter and eternal heavy Charles King. Tex also shines in the climactic "ghost" scare scene, where he uses his deep voice and accompanying organ music to great effect.
