Fur Heist
18 March 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Tex Ritter, Dave O'Brien and Guy Wilkerson are once again The Texas Rangers both in occupation and as regulars of PRC Texas Ranger series. With budgets so minuscule that they were paid out of petty cash, the guys are sent in Frontier Fugitives after a gang that's killing both Indians and whites and the Indians could go on the warpath again.

We never see any Indians in Frontier Fugitive, but we do see some white people dressed like Indians and they're after one particular trapper who has hidden a cache of furs somewhere that the bad guys would like to heist. The late trapper left a written message for his daughter that we spend most of the movie trying to find.

This series was the poor relation of Republic's Three Mesquiteers or Monogram's Range Busters. Tex Ritter sings a bit and there's some good action for western fans, but this is nothing to write home about.
