Storyline

Ranger Jack Mason is sent to Manzanita to bring in Ann Jordan, head of the Jordan gang, reputed to have murdered a rancher and stolen his herd. Mason helps her out during an ambush and, gaining her confidence, hears her side of the story - that tax collector Ott Ramsey, in cahoots with the law, is illegally increasing taxes on ranches and foreclosing on them, and was responsible for the murder in question. Learning she's telling the truth, Mason tries to put her under protective custody but must change his plans when Ramsey and his gang kidnap her and plan her murder.

Trivia

A four-minute-long scene near the end of Come on Danger is an exact copy - line for line and shot for shot - of a scene in George O'Brien's The Renegade Ranger. Watch for the scenes at the 50-minute mark in both movies. It begins with the hero and two sidekicks listening outside a window as the villain discusses murdering the heroine, followed by a fight in which the villains' cook comes out of the kitchen and disrupts the fight by cutting the rope which holds up a suspended wagon-wheel chandelier. In Come on Danger the hero is Tim Holt and his sidekicks are Ray Whitley and Lee White. In The Renegade Ranger the hero is George O'Brien and his sidekicks are Ray Whitley (again) - and none other than Tim Holt. In both versions, Tim Holt pretends to be injured and staggers passed two guards, then he falls over while his two companions jump the distracted guards. See more »

The Robin Hood Of Manzanita
4 September 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Come On Danger finds Tim Holt once again a Texas Ranger on a dangerous assignment. In this case to bring in a notorious outlaw leader. But the twist here is that the outlaw leader is the lovely Frances Neal who would in real life wed Van Heflin and abandon her own movie career.

Tim's sidekicks Lee White and Ray Whitley come along unofficially because they're on suspension from the Texas Rangers following a saloon brawl. But a little investigation on Holt's behalf shows him that Ms. Neal is actually a female Robin Hood who is just taking back what some thieving politicians led by tax collector Karl Hackett has been pilfering from all the honest citizens of Manzanita, Texas.

Come On Danger follows the usual run of Tim Holt westerns, nicely constructed stories with a believable cowboy hero, the very best of them in my opinion.
