This entry in Republic's "Three Mesquiteers" series has a misnomer for a title since the action takes place in Texas and pre-statehood Oklahoma, and the Rocky Mountains are in neither state, but Republic, which easily produced the best of the B-westerns, quite often used a title that had nothing to do with the locale of the film. Stony Brooke, Rusty Joslin and Rico are Texas Rangers unable to enter the territory known as the Panhandle as it is not part of the state, and lawlessness runs rampant there, under the guerrilla leader, King Barton. They discover a young boy, Danny Burke, wounded and left to die by the Barton gang. They nurse him back to health, but he is killed in another raid by the Barton outfit. Stony takes possession of the boy's gun and vows vengeance. Since the strip of land hiding the outlaws is under Federal authority, the Mesquiteers enter the territory with a plan to lure the outlaws across the Texas border.

Trouble In The Panhandle
20 June 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Before we start let me say that this 3 Mesquiteer western goes nowhere near the Rocky Mountains. But a group called The Rocky Mountain Rangers does send a detachment of men to help that other Ranger outfit in Texas deal with the infamous Barton gang. Add to that the 3 Mesquiteers and these outlaws don't have a chance.

The Panhandle has become a no man's land that's run by outlaws chief among them the notorious Barton gang. LeRoy Mason perennial B western villain plays the notorious King Barton, as mean an outlaw as we've ever seen on the big screen or small. The Texas Rangers can't go in there officially, but nothing is going to stop the 3 Mesquiteers especially their young friend Sammy McKim is killed.

Their ace in the hole is the fact that Robert Livingston looks like another notorious outlaw The Laredo Kid. With Duncan Renaldo and Raymond Hatton as backup, Livingston waits to make his move.

This Mesquiteer saga should please fans of all generations.
