A typical Jack Hoxie Blue Streak Western from the assembly lines at Universal, The Rambling Ranger featured the stalwart Hoxie as Hank Kinney, a ranger who adopts an orphaned child (Monte Montague Jr.), whom everybody soon knows as "His Royal Highness." Later, nasty claim jumper Sam Bruce (Captain C.E. Anderson), Hanks' rival for the attention of Ruth Buxley (Dorothy Gulliver), spreads the rumor that Hank is mistreating the child. With the sheriff (Monte Montague) bearing down on them, Hank and "His Royal Highness" manage to escape on the former's handsome steed, Scout. They return with proper adoption papers and Sam Bruce is defeated. Child actor Monte Montague Jr. was the son of the prolific B-Western supporting player.
