Storyline

Ranger Jack Mason is sent to Manzanita to bring in Ann Jordan, head of the Jordan gang, reputed to have murdered a rancher and stolen his herd. Mason helps her out during an ambush and, gaining her confidence, hears her side of the story - that tax collector Ott Ramsey, in cahoots with the law, is illegally increasing taxes on ranches and foreclosing on them, and was responsible for the murder in question. Learning she's telling the truth, Mason tries to put her under protective custody but must change his plans when Ramsey and his gang kidnap her and plan her murder.

Trivia

Before joining the U.S. Army Air Force and serving as a B-29 bombardier in the Pacific, Tim Holt made over a dozen westerns. The studio experimented with different comic sidekicks, with Cliff "Ukulele Ike" Edwards in almost half of them. However, in Come on Danger he actually has two sidekicks - singing cowboy Ray Whitley and old timer Lee 'Lasses' White - who played Smokey and Whopper, respectively. See more »

Decent B; Not One of Holt's better
27 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

COME ON DANGER is one of a bunch that Tim Holt seems to have shot in a hurry before enlisting during World War II. He is a Texas Ranger in this one, investigating some rustling, and turns up a corrupt town.

It's not one of his better ones. While the camera-work by Harry Wild is topnotch, this short 'un is eked out with some cornball humor and songs ("Come On, Danger!") played by his sidekicks, Ray Whitely and Lee White, falling right into the vanilla assistant and the Old Coot mode. Frances Neal is good as the rancher whom he helps.

Holt's westerns usually had the muted love interest written as women who are fairly capable themselves, although they were sometimes played by starlets at the beginning of their careers and not quite up to the writing. Miss Neal is fairly good in the role. However, this movie, while watchable, is not one of the stronger entries in the series.
