Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In this Republic western, Allan "Rocky" Lane plays a Texas Ranger endeavoring to bring progress to the prairies. A natural gas system is slated to be installed in the Lone Star State. Local ranchers oppose this, believing it will have injurious effect on cattle. This misinformation is being spread about scheming villains who hope to take charge of the gas system for their own greedy ends. Eddy Waller is on hand as Lane's sidekick Nugget Clark, while the heroine is former 20th Century-Fox star Cathy Downs. Veteran western scrivener Gerald Geraghty manages to bring a whiff of freshness to the collection of cliches that comprise Bandits of the West.
