A Secret Everybody Knows
27 March 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Tex Ritter rides into Elk Valley where a gang of rustlers has been operating in the dead of winter. These varmints are even getting the elks in on it, using them to break a trail in the snow they can drive the stolen cattle. He saves the herd one time earning the gratitude of Mary Brodel and her little brother Bobby Larson.

He's even drafted into playing Santa Claus at Christmas, but the ranch payroll is rubbed and someone killed by a man wearing a Santa Claus outfit. Tex is almost lynched and even his friend sheriff Horace Murphy is at a loss. Still he escapes to find the real killer.

Which you know he will do since he is the cowboy hero. The plot here took a far turn as the outlaw leader has a terrible secret over Brodel and Larson. Everyone else and his brother knows, but the idea is to keep it from them. It got a little ridiculous in my opinion.

Tex escapes the outlaw's clutches with a little skill at a winter sport. This one was way too far fetched and at times got downright maudlin. I don't think the Saturday matinée crowd was too crazy about this one.
