No matter the era
2 June 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Tales Of The Texas Rangers apparently believed that the Rangers was a family profession. Willard Parker and Harry Lauter as Rangers Jace Pearson and Clay Morgan starred in the show. Which alternated between the old west and the modern day. But two rangers named Pearson and Morgan were always apprehending bad guys no matter the era.

The two had the same uniforms in both old west and modern stories and both sported a two gun rig. But for the modern stories they rode in a squad car with a trailer hitched to it where they kept the horses. Should the bad guys take off into some rugged terrain, they could saddle the horses and continue the pursuit. It's what I remember best about the show I started watching at the age of 8.

Joel McCrea narrated and starred in a radio version of the show in the role that Willard Parker had. It might have been nice to see him on television. But the man was in his 50s already.

It's a fond memory from childhood, wish I could see it again.
