Tex and his father meet Henry Colby (Edward Cassidy), the wealthiest landholder in the district, who has been advised by his ranch foreman, Frank Hade (Charles King), and Sam Barrett (Jack Ingram), the boss of Rawhide, that the nesters are the cause of all the lawlessness. At a meeting, preceded by the dullest, most demeaning minstrel show ever filmed, Captain Wyatt is shot (a fate that should have befallen the minstrels) and the bullet is found to be the same calibre as that used in the earlier killings, although Wyatt is only wounded.

Spider Returns, The (1941)
Columbia's 14th serial (between "White Eagle" and "The Iron Claw") and the second serial based upon the character in the pulp magazine from Street and Smith "The Spider Magazine." Some sources, evidently based on their knowledge that L. Ron Hubbard and Norvell Page wrote stories for that magazine, have incorrectly credited them as being writers of this serial. The only serial that L. Ron Hubbard wrote was 1938's "The Secret of Treasure Island" filmed by Columbia, and the only connection Page has is that he wrote stories about the character in the magazine. Chapter One, "The Stolen Plans", has a gang of saboteurs, led by The Gargoyle, a mysterious and powerful agent for an unnamed country, playing havoc with National Defense projects. Socialite Richard Wentworth (Warren Hull), alias the Spider, returns to continue his crusade against the underworld. Wentworth calls a meeting of the nation's biggest business men, but the Gargoyle's men disrupt it with a tear-gas bomb. Chasing after them, Wentworth is taken prisoner and placed aboard an airplane. The pilot sets it afire and bails out, with Wentworth unconscious in the plunging-to-earth airplane as the first episode ends. Knox Manning asking if this is the end is easily answered by those who knew this was a 15 chapter serial, and that neither The Spider (in chapter two) nor Blinky McQuade (in chapter four) had yet made an entrance. The quest by Wentworth/Spider/McQuade to learn the identity of the Gargoyle isn't helped any by the fact that he is one of the businessnmen in attendance at every meeting Wentworth calls to discuss his future plans. Based on pure fun, this is one of the, to use a relative term, best of the James W. Horne-directed serials, but the absence of James Craven foaming at the mouth and screaming at the henchmen - "Idiots! Idiots! I'm surrounded by idiots!" - is sorely missed.

In September of 1972 an unprecedented terrorist attack unfolded live before 900 million television viewers across the globe and ushered in a brave new world of unpredictable violence. It was the second week of the Summer Olympics, and in Munich, West Germany, the games that had been dubbed "The Olympics of Peace and Joy" were off to a rousing start. Without warning, an extremist Palestinian group known as Black September invaded the Olympic Village, killing two members of the Israeli Olympic team and capturing nine hostages. The tense stand-off and tragic massacre that ensued played out with stunning immediacy on television before an international populace and ended 21 hours later when anchorman Jim McKay spoke the haunting words, "They're all gone." Mourning the massacre and infuriated by its savagery, a young Israeli patriot and intelligence officer, Avner is approached by a Mossad officer named Ephraim who presents him with an unprecedented mission in Israeli history. He asks Avner to leave behind his pregnant wife, relinquish his identity and go completely underground on a mission to hunt down and kill the 11 men accused of masterminding the murders. Despite his inexperience, Avner becomes the leader of a team of four very diverse yet highly skilled recruits: the brash, tough, South African-born getaway driver, Steve; the German Jew Hans, who has a flair for forging documents; the Belgian toymaker-turned-explosives-expert, Robert; and the quiet, methodical Carl, whose job is to "clean up" after the others. Avner and his team circle the globe under a cloak of extreme secrecy, tracking down each man on a closely guarded list of targets and carrying out intricately plotted assassinations. Working outside the rubric of international law, adrift without home or family, their only connection to humanity becomes one another. But even that starts to fray as the four men begin to argue among themselves about the unsettling questions that just won't go away: "Who exactl

Guns of the Law (1944) as Composer
The 11th in the series of 14 "Texas Rangers" westerns from P.R.C. that starred Dave O'Brien and Jim Newill, before Newill was replaced by Tex Ritter in the concluding eight films of a very bad 22-films series: Lillian Wilkins (Jennifer Holt) and her old Civil War Veteran Uncle Jed Wilkins (Budd Buster)own a ranch through which a pipeline will be laid. They are unaware of this but Dan Tyndall (Robert Barron), Joe Hyslop (Bob Kortman) and Tom Binns (Frank McCarroll) are aware of the possibilities for a quick profit and set out to prove through crooked-surveyor Sam Brisco (Jack Ingram)that the land has been improperly surveyed and not rightfully the possession of the Wilkins. They go to family friend and attorney Kendall Lowther (Charles King) for advice and this is not a good move as Lowther is actually the brains behind the scheme to beat them out of their property. But Texas Rangers Tex Wyatt (Dave O'brien) and Jim Steele (Jim Newill) show up to take a hand on the side of the Wilkins. That also means that Panhandle Perkins (Guy Wilkerson), accompained by Lee Zahler's horrific comedy scoring, will also show up. Wilkerson's comedy and Zahler's music is enough to make one root for the villains. This one has so many villains that Bud Osborne is relagated to playing a good guy role.

Dty Gulch Trading Post owner Kurt Fabian (Robert Barron) advances money on mortgages to the local settlers to finance an irrigation program. Three Texas Rangers, Tex Wyatt (Dave "Tex" O'Brien), Jim Steele (Jim Newell) and Panhandle Perkins (Guy Wilkerson) transport the money in a strong box which they place in the Wells Fargo safe as agent Sam Benson (Dick Curtis, for only about the third time in his 200-plus film career he isn't the dyed-in-the-wool villain) assures them that he is the only one who knows the safe combination. Fabian conspires with Bill Gunner (Dick Alexander), Breed Crocker (Bob Cason) and Trigger Booth (Charles King) to steal the money and they fail, but Fabian gets it on his own. Benson is arrested, and a committee of citizens, led by Oscar Perrin (John Elliott) accuse Captain Wyatt (Edward Cassidy) and the Rangers of carelessness and request the resignation of the Captain if the money is not recovered. Fabian owns the abandoned ghost town of "Mystic", and Gunner, Crocker and Booth take him there to force him to tell where he has hidden the money, They shoot at his feet to intimidate him and he dies from fright and shock. Tex, Jim and Panhandle are also searching the town and they find Fabian's body. Benson tells Lucy Warren (Mady Lawrence) that the money may be hidden in the old Wells Fargo office in Mystic and they go there and find the strongbox. Enter Gunner, Crocker and Booth. Enter the Rangers. Gunfight.

In the 8th film of the 22-film series, Texas Rangers Tex Wyatt (Dave O'Brien), Jim Steele (Jim Newill) and Panhandle Perkins (Guy Wilkerson) are sent to the district of Rawhide to investigate the killings of several ranchers. Tex enters the town posing as a tramp while the other two Rangers join a troupe of itinerant minstrels. Tex, convinced that while they may find the killer, it will not prevent further harassment of the poorer ranchers, and he returns to the Ranger station and persuades his father, Texas Ranger Captain John Wyatt (Robert Hill), to take a leave of absence and go to Rawhide and run for Land Commissioner. Tex and his father meet Henry Colby (Edward Cassidy), the wealthiest landholder in the district, who has been advised by his ranch foreman, Frank Hade (Charles King), and Sam Barrett (Jack Ingram), the boss of Rawhide, that the nesters are the cause of all the lawlessness. At a meeting, preceded by the dullest, most demeaning minstrel show ever filmed, Captain Wyatt is shot (a fate that should have befallen the minstrels) and the bullet is found to be the same calibre as that used in the earlier killings, although Wyatt is only wounded. Mary Colby (Nell O'Day), riding the range, sees Barrett attempt to kill Tex using a rifle. Realizing he has been identified, Barrett hurries back to town where he meets the other gang members, and they prepare to fight against the Rangers.
