Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Buck Jones western The Fighting Ranger utilizes its familiar plotline with excellent results. When Jones' kid brother is killed by the villains, our hero quits the Texas Rangers and sets off to seek vengeance on his own. He ends up just below the Mexican border, where bandit leader Cougar (Bradley Page) lives high off the hog, knowing he can't be extradited. But Jones is able to round up the baddies just in time for the "End" title. Columbia's all-purpose leading lady Dorothy Revier is the heroine, while comedy relief is provided by eyeball-rolling Frank Rice.
