This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. Its earliest documented post-WWII telecasts took place in Cincinnati, where it was shown in two parts Thursday-Friday 21-22 April 1949 on WKRC (Channel 11), in Los Angeles Sunday 12 June 1949 on KTSL (Channel 2), in Philadelphia Thursday 1 December 1949 on WFIL (Channel 6), and in New York City Tuesday 27 December 1949 on WPIX (Channel 11).

Well this had a bit of a novelty.In a bar room scene on comes a pretty blonde and starts an energetic tap routine.I cant ever remember seeing this before.The dancer is Margaret Nearing who according to the biographical information had been dancing in a circus from the age of 4.She seeams to have had a short career in Hollywood mainly in uncredited bits.She got married in 1936 when she seems to have retired from the screen.She is not much when it comes to the acting part having a rather monotonous voice a bit like Minnie Mouse.As for the rest this is all rather standard stuff.Again a Ranger going into a bandits camp helped by a reformed outlaw.I wonder how often this plot was used.The equipment used must have been primitive as in the exterior shots the sound of the camera motor is often audible.No better or worse then Westerns of that era.
