Code of the Rangers was one of four Monogram westerns of the 1937-38 season starring the venerable Tim McCoy. In this one, Texas Ranger Tim Strong (McCoy) tries his best to straigthen out his hotheaded brother Jack (Rex Lease). Things don't work out, and before long Tim is protecting Jack from a bank-robbery charge. Taking the blame for the theft, our hero is exonerated only by a last-minute confession from his wayward sibling. There's lots of fisticuffs and gunplay in Code of the Rangers, enabling viewers to forget the film's threadbare production values and banal plotline.
