Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Texas Rangers ride again in the PRC oater Gunsmoke Mesa. As in earlier series entries, the rangers are played by Jim Newill (the handsome one), Dave O'Brien (the athletic one) and Guy "Panhandle" Wilkerson (the funny one). The villain is the appropriately named Henry Black (Jack Ingram), guardian of the young heir to a gold mine. Since Black was responsible for orphaning said heir, he has no reservations about knocking off the kid as well-but the Texas Rangers aren't about to let that happen. Better photographed than most PRC westerns, Gunsmoke Mesa was lensed by the prolific and efficient Ira H. Morgan.
