Gene Autry, Texas Ranger .........
6 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this later film from Gene Autry's Columbia days, Gene plays a former Texas Ranger who is fed up with the shenanigans of the corrupt new State Police. Along with his trusty sidekick, Pat Butram, he pins his badge back on and proceeds to show them the error of their ways.

Gene is great in this film, with fewer songs and more action than in his pre-war films. Pat Butram is hilarious as always, being Gene's second-best sidekick (after Smiley Burnette).

The action, script, casting and music are all top notch here. One of Gene Autry's best films ......... based in part on a real life incident from Texas history !
