Goofs

Keep an eye on that early scene when the good guy trio stop to read the Private Property sign on the Black Hawk Mining property. A warning shot knocks Stubby's hat off from the direction in which he's facing, but all three turn left to see a couple of henchmen who were responsible. See more »

The First Boy Scout
19 January 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

A fairly silly plot has Tex Ritter joining forces with a troop of apparently unchaperoned Boy Scouts who are looking for a dangerous gang of train robbers, something that I don't think would ever happen in real life!

Not really one of his best adventures, Tex Rides With The Boy Scouts is pretty inoffensive (unless you're Chinese) and mildly interesting, as long as you don't think about it too much.

There just wasn't enough action or memorable songs (with the exception of Tex's rendition of The Girl I Left Behind Me) this go-around, to satisfy.

However, Ritter is good as always, the leading lady is quite attractive, and the kiddie audiences of the day probably loved it, especially the real-life scouts.
