TIM & CHITO ARE BORDER RANGERS
31 October 1999 | by (Benbrook, Texas) – See all my reviews

Tim Holt did a number of well mounted, B-Westerns for RKO. I enjoyed all of them, even though like the Republic westerns, they developed one or two different formulas which was used for each movie.

Here Tim (Kansas) and Richard Martin (Chito Jose Gonzalez Bustamonte Rafferty, I think I spelled all that right) are U.S. Border Patrol Rangers. They are joined by Mexican Ranger Rick Vallin to try to catch gun runners. The system used by the bad guys is inventive, and there are the usual fights and chases to keep the action lively.

This was really just standard, but good, Saturday Afternoon fare, more for kids than adults (or the kid at heart like me).

The acting, script, and direction were always good in this series, and the plots were simple but entertaining. I think the best of his movies was Brothers In The Saddle (1949).
