Tex Ritter and the long arm of the law !
27 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

Singing cowboy great Tex Ritter stars in the B-Western favorite from the 1940's. In this one, Tex appears again with frequent co-star Dave O'Brien . The two are caught in the middle of a frontier spat between sheep men and ranchers. In between a few homespun cowpoke tunes, lawyer Ritter helps to restore order amongst the various feuding factions.

Ritter was not much of an actor, but always seemed at home on the range. His personable, witty style here fore-shadowed the lovable characters his son John Ritter would also make famous a few decades later. He was a great singer/songwriter, which made this a very enjoyable western programmer.
