Storyline

"Iron Mike" Haines (Tom Chatterton), a crooked sheriff, and "Hands" Weber (Roy Barcroft), the town blacksmith, are in cahoots and have been robbing stages, silver mines, etc., and framing innocent ranchers and cowhands with their deeds. They set out to rob the stage and frame Red Ryder (Bill Elliott as Wild Bill Elliott) for it, but the plan backfires and the sheriff is killed. The sheriff's son, Tommy (Jack McClendon), arrives home from college and is given his dad's job, not knowing he was a crook, and swears to get the man who killed him. Weber tells Tommy that Red killed his dad and Tommy sets out to get Red. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

...and there's still no "The" in the title.

For their 1940-1941 serial line-up, Republic Pictures Corporation announced that one of the four serials would be called "The Lone Texas Ranger." The ink had barely dried on the announcement before the Detroit copyright owners of "The Lone Ranger" (George W. Trendle- radio station WXYZ and Lone Ranger, Inc.) objected most profoundly, wrote a couple of letters to Republic president Morris J. "Moe" Siegel and the company lawyers threatening court action, and the result was, without going to court, that "The Lone Texas Ranger" disappeared as an up-coming Republic Pictures Corporation serial and was replaced by one called "The Adventures of Red Ryder." The replacement serial turned out to be one of the most-fondly remembered and easily in the Top Ten of all Republic Pictures Corporation (which was and still is the correct name of the company.) The intended script (for "The Lone Texas Ranager") was modified slightly and used as an entry in Republic Pictures CORPORATION's 1941-1942 serial schedule...and now titled "King of the Texas Rangers." And it also turned out to be one of the jewels in Republic Pictures CORPORATION'S serial crown.

In 1945, Bob Williams wrote an original screenplay for an entry in the companies Red-Ryder series, and the Republic title-namers called it "Lone Texas Ranger." And got no threatening letters from anybody in Detroit over the matter.
