The legendary lawmen known as The Texas Rangers are called in when thousands of cattle are disappearing from the White Sage Ranch owned by the Dangerfield family. An outlaw known as The Pecos Kid (John Howard) is taken on as a ranch hand, and he meets cute with the lovely young Ellen 'Slats' Dangerfield (Ellen Drew), a family member just recently returned to the old homestead.

"The Texas Rangers Ride Again" is no more and no less than lightly entertaining, fun, routine B western fare. There's not much of a story here, but there is good atmosphere, and a healthy amount of humour. There are enough genuinely funny moments - especially when The Pecos Kid pretends that he's got a gunshot wound - to make this pleasant (if forgettable) entertainment.

The cast is full of solid actors: Akim Tamiroff, Broderick Crawford, John Miljan, Anthony Quinn, Monte Blue, Donald Curtis, Charles Lane, Tom Tyler, and a young, uncredited Robert Ryan. But the show is stolen by feisty old May Robson as Ellens' live wire grandmother Cecilia and Charley Grapewin as aged Ranger Ben Caldwalder. Howard is a charming and engaging lead, and Ms. Drew is quite cute and amiable. Some of the humour derives from 'Slats' being such a tenderfoot.

These 68 minutes pass by in likable enough fashion.

Six out of 10.
