After Jenny sees a wanted poster that makes her think Eddie is the Tioga Kid, Eddie has a hard time before bringing the gang to justice, aided by the change-of-heart Tioga Kid.

In spite of the incorrect cast order shown by some uninformed source when this was written, Johnny Mack Brown did not play the character of Nevada Jack McKenzie in this film, Raymond Hatton did not play Sandy Hopkins, and Raymond Hatton was billed 2nd and not 5th as shown.

Henchman Mugsy (Boyd Stockman)is captured by Johnny, while Larry, Slim (Lane Bradford) and the other henchmen escape after shooting telegraph patrolman Nevada (Kansas Moehring). Larry kills Mugsy before he can identify the gang leader. Henchman Straker (Bob Woodward)is captured by Johnny and jailed. Slim steals Johnny's identification card from his saddle bag, and it is found near the jail when Wheelock's men help Straker break jail and kill a deputy sheriff. Because of the card, the Marshal (William Ruhl as William S. Ruhl)arrests Johnny, but Joe comes to his rescue. An attempt to fire the Kerrigan ranch is foiled, and Larry's hat is found, which proves to Sandra her fiancee's crookness. Larry is trailed to Wheelock's office, and both are killed in a shootout with Johnny, Cappy and Joe.

Oklahoma Raiders (1944) as Todd [Wingate]
Oklahoma Raiders is yet one more Betty Burbridge re-working of an original Bennett Cohen story ("Come on Danger,1932", "The Renegade Ranger, 1938", "Come On Danger, 1942" and "Alias Billy the Kid, 1946" among a couple of other uses), usually commissioned by Cohen or Oliver Drake as Associate Producers of whichever version they were involved with. In this one, the hero is an investigator sent by the U.S. Army rather than the Texas Rangers, but the roots show quickly. During the Civil War, Union Army Lieutenant Steve Nolan (Tex Ritter) and Corporal Banjo Bonner (Fuzzy Knight) are assigned to trail and capture "El Vengador/The Avenger", outlaw leader whose band is stealing herds of wild horses before they can be delivered on contract to the Army. Disguised as an unshaven, seedy cowpuncher, Steve arrives in Benton, Oklahoma territory and witnesses the robbery of the post office by Duggan (Dick Alexander) and Higgins (I. Stanford Jolley), henchmen of Arnold Drew (Jack Ingram), who holds the contract to deliver the horses. Steve stops the two robbers but is wounded by the unseen Drew. The townspeople assume the unconscious Steve is part of the gang, and Judge Clem Masters (John Elliott) instructs a deputy (Ethan Laidlaw) to take Steve to the next town to have his head-wound treated. Drew orders Duggan and Higgins to ambush the wagon and kill Steve, but they shoot the deputy instead, and the team runs away with the helpless Steve. He is dumped over an ambankment just as Donna Ross (Jennifer Holt), Todd Wingate (Dennis Moore) and Boone Talbot (Stephen Keyes) arrive on the scene. Donna takes Steve to a hideout in the mountains, where she is revealed as El Vengador, leading a group of dispossed ranchers against Drew and land agent James Prescott (George Eldredge), who have illegaly taken over the rancher's lands, so they can take over the contract of furnishing the horses. Steve is nursed back to health by Donna and returns clean-shaven to Benton to gather evidence against the Drew/Prescott gang, but Donna and Todd think he is a spy that has betrayed them. Former Universal (1937-1939) western star Bob Baker is relagated to just a bit as a cowboy leaning against the saloon bar, and one of the lynch-mob leaders later on.

The Sunset Murder Case (1941) as Lou [Fleming]
First of all this film was produced and distributed in 1938, and is not a 1941 production. The exhibitors and various censor boards objected to the original title, "The Sunset Strip Case" (because of the double meaning that implied a strip on Sunset rather than the name of the street, which is exactly what the producer had in mind when he hired fan-dancer Sally Rand, the hit of the Chicago Exposition and the later Texas Centennial), and Boston promptly banned the film, as Boston was often subject to do with far less reason than they had with this film. The film was tied up in law suits across the country brought against the various blue-nose boards who also blocked its showing, and all this was going on during the collapse of Grand National with GN president E. W. Hammons being hauled to court by exhibitors and creditors, including the production unit headed by this film's producer George A. Hirliman. The latter produced it for Grand National distribution, but Grand National had no distribution left when Hirliman finally got it cleared for showing in New York in 1941 under the title of "The Sunset Murder Case"...and it was distribued through indie exchanges in 1941 as Grand National had long folded its tent. It still carried the Grand National logo, which evidently has fooled the source that keeps calling this a 1941 production, and showing it as being distributed by an entity that no longer existed. The cast order shown on the 1941 prints is no way reflective of the cast order shown on original release. Excuse the use of Plot Summary to explain why this is not a 1941 film, but that is beginning to appear to be the only way to get this film into its proper decade. The plot summary, albeit skimpy,already on site will suffice for the plot. Be advised that Sally Rand was slower with her fans and showed more flesh in a later-Soundies short film than she does here. This one ran into trouble in 1938 because of her name, and not what she actually showed, although she showed more than was custom in 1938...or 1948 or 1958 for that matter.

By the time U.S. Marshal Tex Reed (Tex Ritter) and his pal, Slim Chance (Slim Andrews as "Arkansas Slim" Andrews), arrive in town , a gang of horse thieves have killed the sheriff and his deputy and have stolen all the horses that Jeff Manners (Dennis Moore) needs to fulfill his contract with the U. S. Cavalry. The gang has control of town politics also, and are about to close the school where Jeff's sister, Mary (Dorothy Fay) teaches. Tex tells the mayor, Jim Rader (Jim Pierce), the school is to be kept open, and when he beats gang member Bart Griffin (Warner Richmond in a fight, Rader and Griffin decide to get Tex out of the way. They frame Jeff for the murder of Luke Evans and then tell Jeff that Tex is coming to arrest him, hoping that Jeff will kill Tex. When Jeff finds out that Tex knows he has been framed, the two join forces in time to stop another horse raid in which Slim is injured. With the aid of Buck (Chuck Morrison), a gang member befriended by Tex, they get back the original stolen herd and kill or jail the gang members. Filmed in and around Prescott, Arizona, home of Dorothy Fay (Southworth), Ritter's leading lady and future-and-only wife. Fay's younger brother, Tommy Southworth, also has a small role in the film, and the music is provided by two Arizona radio bands led by Art Wilcox and Romaine LOUDERMILK, who is not the same as writer Romaine H. LOWDERMILK, despite the source that seems to think so.

Rocky Mountain Rangers (1940) as Jim Barton
This entry in Republic's "Three Mesquiteers" series has a misnomer for a title since the action takes place in Texas and pre-statehood Oklahoma, and the Rocky Mountains are in neither state, but Republic, which easily produced the best of the B-westerns, quite often used a title that had nothing to do with the locale of the film. Stony Brooke (Robert Livingston), Rusty Joslin (Raymond Hatton) and Rico (Duncan Renaldo) are Texas Rangers unable to enter the territory known as the Panhandle as it is not part of the state, and lawlessness runs rampant there, under the guerilla leader, King Barton (LeRoy Mason.) They discover a young boy, Danny Burke (Sammy McKim), wounded and left to die by the Barton gang. They nurse him back to health, but he is killed in another raid by the Barton outfit. Stony takes possession of the boy's gun and vows vengeance. Since the strip of land hiding the outlaws is under Federal authority, the Mesquiteers enter the territory with a plan to lure the outlaws across the Texas border. Stony, posing as his look-alike outlaw double known as The Laredo Kid, stages a jail break to free King Barton's younger brother Jim (Dennis Moore) from a Texas jail and insinuates himself into the gang. Barton has been forcing a Panhandle gunsmith named Manners (John St. Polis) to provide weapons for him, and Manners' daughter, Doris (Rosella Towne), is antagonistic toward Stony, whom she believes to be The Laredo Kid. Stony soon convinces her of his true identity. The plot to lure the Barton gang into Texas is progressing nicely until the real Laredo Kid shows up and exposes Stony.
