After unsuccessfully impersonating a Mexican in his previous The Avenger, cowboy star Buck Jones returned to form in The Texas Ranger. Jones plays the title character, who on this occasion has been assigned to bring lady bandit Carmelita Geraghty to justice. Upon learning that the heroine turned to a life of crime because she was falsely accused of murder, Jones sets about to find the real killer. Briefly posing as an outlaw, our hero infiltrates Geraghty's outlaw gang, ultimately exposing the Benedict Arnold who framed her. A few clever directorial touches aside, Texas Ranger is a traditional Jones vehicle, but that's what the fans craved.
