violent, fast moving with plenty of good action scenes.
Phil Karlson knew how to make the most out of his movies, and The Texas Rangers proves the point. The only other Montgomery western that is just as good is "The Iroquois Trail" also directed by Karlson. In this film Montgomery is an outlaw who is betrayed together with his friend Noah Beery Jr., by the vicious Sundance Kid. William Bishop (Sam Bass) decides to unite a group of famous outlaws like Butch Cassidy, Sundance, John Wesley Hardin, and Dave Rudabaugh. At the beginning of the film they show each famous outlaw killing somebody, the idea is to show how cruel they are. Montgomery is freed from jail on condition he will help the rangers in their fight against the outlaws. Gale Storm(Helen), who writes in the newspaper hates him because her father died in a shootout between him and Sundance. If you like westerns with plenty of good action scenes, fast moving you, will enjoy this film. The last sequence, when they fight on the train is excellent.
