ARIZONA DAYS (1937, Grand National) Tex Ritter, Eleanor Stewart, Syd Saylor. Tex joins up with a traveling minstrel show. When outlaws burn out the show, he takes a job as a tax collector to help raise money for the troupe. One of the people he collects from is the outlaw guilty of the arson. 16mm.
TROUBLE IN TEXAS (1937 Grand National) Tex Ritter, Rita Casino (Hayworth), Yakima Canutt. Poisoned needles dipped in snake venom are used to murder rodeo stars. Tex is an intended victim in this fine western that's filled with excitement. An "explosive" climax. Later prints were altered to take advantage of Hayworth's name change. From a great 16mm print.
THE MAN FROM TEXAS (1938, UNCUT) Tex Ritter, Charles Wood, Hal Price, Keene Duncan, Tom London. Tex tries to straighten out a young gunslinger who has fallen in with crooks. Things get dicey when the gunslinger is ordered to gun down Tex himself! Tex sings a nice song or two. PLEASE NOTE: Our version runs 59 minutes, which is three minutes longer than the listed 56-minute running time of the Alpha Video release. From 16mm.
THE WHISPERING SKULL (1944, PRC) Tex Ritter, Dave O’Brien, Guy Wilkerson, Denny Burke, Henry Hall. Almost more of a cheap PRC horror film than a cheap PRC western. A mad killer is loose, terrorizing the region in a grotesque leather mask with a weird skull face. He rides through the darkened countryside atop a mysterious horse that makes no sound and leaves no trail. Tex and Dave try to sort out the mysterious goings-on and find out who the fiend is. Lots of dark and creepy scenes with an abundance of that good old dark and creepy music. In the Forgotten Horrors vein. Cheap, but fun. 16mm.
