Rangers to the Rescue !
25 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 1950 western film features former Hopalong Cassidy sidekicks Jimmy Ellison & Russ Hayden as lawmen hired to nail a couple of crooked galloots terrorizing a community. With the help of Raymond Hatton, they face violent retaliation with fierce determination. Hatton's role as the Colonel was a highlight of the film.

The three leads work well together and the film is fairly interesting with a decent supporting cast (including the prolific George Chesboro). Despite the low budget and familiar plot, i enjoyed seeing these familiar faces in a film together.

While not a classic, B-western fans will find this one worth a look.
