Storyline

Texas, 1878: cheerful outlaw-buddies Jim, Lorn and Wahoo rescue spunky orphan Rannie Carter from rustling racketeers, then are forced to separate. Lorn goes on to bigger and better robberies, while Jim and Wahoo are (at first reluctantly) maneuvered into joining the Texas Rangers. For friendship's sake, the three try to keep out of direct conflict, but a showdown begins to look inevitable. And Rannie, now grown into lovely young womanhood, must choose between Lorn and Jim.

An exceptional western...
26 March 2008 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Paramount's remake of their own 1936 western "The Texas Rangers" has three small-time stagecoach robbers separated after tangling with a sniveling extortionist and his cohorts in 1879 Texas; two of the men inadvertently join the Texas Rangers and find that working for the right side of the law really suits them, while the third man becomes a notorious outlaw. Despite some confusion in the character motivations and loyalties, this is an astute, absorbing drama with beautiful photography and solid performances. Who would've ever guessed Macdonald Carey could be a worthy opponent for William Holden? Dressed all in black, with a smug expression and heavy-lidded eyes, Carey is a surprisingly formidable villain. Holden, despite several sigh-heavy movie star close-ups, is very convincing with a gun and a horse; his character's playing both sides, while also falling for tomboyish Mona Freeman, provides the heart of the story, and Holden is never less than exciting to watch. Extremely well-directed by Leslie Fenton, with fine supporting work by William Bendix and a bouncy score by Victor Young. *** from ****
