Our heroes, Texas Rangers based in Laredo, are joined by a pompous and persnickity constable who plans to civilize and modernize law enforcement in Texas according to methods he's developed in nine years of law enforcement in New Hampshire. He accompanies them on an adventure in which they encounter the wily outlaw, Linda Littletrees. They lose Linda, but they do get rid of the constable only to be joined by an old friend of Reese's, a man who believes himself to be a jinx--with some reason. They set out again to capture Linda, but Linda gets a look at Joe with his shirt off and falls in love. She has him captured and tied up so she can marry him, and the other Rangers must rescue him. Joe escapes unscathed and Cletus breaks his jinx, but Linda eludes capture once more. Written by

This western looks what it is, a TV programme elongated to make it even more repetitious and boring than it would have been on the small screen.I am not sure who was worse -- Neville Brand,pulling faces, all gruff knockabout stupid amiability, William Smith, like Brand a fine actor when playing 'tough' roles, here struggling to play a nice guy,Shelley Morrison, as the ludricously expressionless and monotonous Native American woman who leads an outlaw gang ( yeah, right) or her knockabout sidekick, forever taking pratfalls entirely unamusingly.
This also has a ridiculous gunfight in which our hero Texas Rnagers simply ignore the bullets and engage the baddies in fisticuffs -- why the baddies didn't just shoot them, I don't know, except they were knockabout fools too and killing people wouldn't have been in keeping in a film made by amateurs for juveniles.
I am being unfair in criticising this as an adult, but one can only take as one finds....and this was execrable....
