Storyline

In Texas, the citizens are suffering from the brutality of the State Police who have replaced the disbanded Rangers. When a policeman kills a rancher, Gene then kills him in self defence. Now wanted for murder by the Police, Gene sets out to get evidence that will put an end to the Police and bring back the Texas Rangers. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

The Eyes of Texas
14 June 2013 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Given the demands of his weekly TV show (1950-1955) and a steady stream of matinée programmers, like this one, I wonder when Gene had a chance to relax. Actually this is one of his better 60-minute programmers. It's plot heavy-- replacing a crooked State Police with the Texas Rangers, along with the usual combative intrigues. I believe there's just one song, so Gene is concentrating on story rather than musical entertainment. Even comic relief Buttram is unusually restrained in his antics. It's not especially scenic, but with a strong appeal for southern audiences with repeated references to Texas and the Confederacy. Anyway, can't help noticing the director and producer are also his TV team, so likely he worked these programmers into his TV schedule. Whatever the case, it's an entertaining hour of Gene and Champion.
