Movie Info

This average Tex Ritter music Western provided the former radio and Broadway performer with not one but two comedy sidekicks: Horace Murphy) and Snub Pollard. According to a few dour critics, Ritter would have been much better off without. The three played Arizona Rangers who rescue a pretty stagecoach passenger, Louise Rogers (Louise Stanley), from a gang of outlaws. Learning that rustlers are terrorizing the border populace, Tex and his cohorts align themselves with Captain Mendoza (Martin Garralaga) of the Mexican Rurales. But when Doc (Murphy) and Pee Wee (Pollard) are falsely accused of stealing and thrown in jail, Tex pretends to desert the rangers. He is quickly befriended by Jeffries (Earl Dwire), the head of the rustlers, and grabs the opportunity to combat the gang from the inside. Louise Rogers, pretending to be a saloon singer, is actually a secret agent and together they bring the rustlers to justice. Ritter took time out to warble his own title-tune as well as Arizona Rangers and, with Miss Stanley, Home on the Range. Riders of the Rockies was one in a series of Ritter Westerns produced independently by Edward F. Finney for release by Grand National. In fact, the low-budget but lucrative Ritter vehicles would finance the latter company's $900,000 Something to Sing About (1937), a James Cagney musical fiasco quickly dubbed "Something to Cy About."more
