COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
Madison is a Texas Ranger who resigns after he gets a reputation for bringing them back dead. He takes a job as deputy sheriff and quickly becomes embroiled in a range war against Greene, a rancher intent on taking over the whole range. He also begins an affair with French, Greene''s wife, who wants Madison to kill her husband for her. She ends up doing the job herself.
The film was based on the popular daytime Mutual Broadcasting Company radio program that originated from New York on April 30, 1945 as "Queen For Today" and moved to Hollywood a few months later as "Queen For A Day", with Jack Bailey, former vaudeville music man and World's Fair barker, as the emcee host. The five-times-a-week, thirty minute doses spun over to television and lasted into the 70's. Bailey, in pre-airing interviews with audience members, would select 3-4 contestants who would pour out their (mostly pitiful) hearts explaining why they deserved to be Queen For A Day, and the audience selected the winner. The movie version was comprised of three short story segments which led some character to the television program.
