THE TEXAS RANGERS (1936)
I really didn't have that high of hopes for THE TEXAS RANGERS, but I ended up enjoying it thoroughly and watch parts of it twice. I especially liked seeing MacMurray and Nolan in sinister roles. The comedic antics of Oakie got a little tiring, but it wasn't too bad. All in all THE TEXAS RANGERS is a pretty good mid-30's western. Not a classic by any means, but a good solid and entertaining film. Quick pace, good story, strong supporting cast (including Edward Ellis, Jean Parker, Charles Middleton and George Hayes), nice scenery, exciting action scenes. Recommended.
