Looters of the plains
19 March 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In Westbound Stage Tex Ritter is visiting his cousin Kenneth Duncan who is in the army and in charge of a patrol where there is one huge mix up and Duncan is killed and the rest charged with desertion.

The patrol was after Reed Howes who leads one bottom feeding gang of looters whose method for insuring they never get caught is to massacre all the travelers. Works for stagecoaches and these outlaws have a real pay day when they come upon a wagon train.

Ritter has a couple of nice cowboy ballads to sing and there's action aplenty. The final shootout with the outlaws is well staged.

For Tex's musical and action fans.
