By any other name it's rustling
2 May 2005 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I'm sure Paramount could not possibly have released what the end would be in the careers in the cast of Texas Rangers Ride Again. You've got the unusual situation where the nominal leads, John Howard and Ellen Drew, are overshadowed by the incredible supporting cast. Two of them, Anthony Quinn and Broderick Crawford went on to win Oscars. The rest of the cast included such worthies as May Robson, Akim Tamiroff, Eddie Foy, Jr., and Charley Grapewin probably all better known to the average movie buff than the leads.

The leads deem it a B film. But Paramount in shooting on location in Arizona gave it some A production values. Ellen Drew was best known as Hugette in If I Were King and John Howard's career role was as George Kittridge in The Philadelphia Story. Drew is the granddaughter of May Robson who is essentially reprising her role from The Texans. Howard and Crawford are Texas Rangers working undercover a cattle hijacking operation.

Well by any other name, it's rustling. And this is a modern day western so the Rangers are equipped with shortwave radios to aid in crime fighting and automobiles to supplement the horses.

One line really disturbed me though. From the gitgo it's clear that Anthony Quinn playing Indian cowboy Joe Yuma who's involved with the rustlers. But he's dismissed as the possible big boss with the line, "no Indian could possibly be clever enough to be behind this operation." I'm sure Anthony Quinn with his mestizo heritage got a real charge out of that. Actually his character is quite shrewd and that line doesn't gibe with the plot at all.

The supporting cast is classic, but this nothing to stay home on Saturday afternoon for.
