The Cowgirl, the Ranch Girl, and the Texas Ranger
There are two notable women in this adventure. The woman that you will see the least of is famous cowgirl Mabel Strickland. In a sport that was only for men, she won her first rodeo contest at the age of 16. You might think that such an athletic girl would not be terribly feminine, but Mabel Strickland was not only an expert rodeo performer, but a beautiful and graceful woman.
You will see her perform with her trained horse ‘Sunday,’ in a chase scene near the end of this story. John Wayne’s best friend Yakima Canutt, a rodeo expert himself, is the henchman in black, who will shoot and chase Mabel until she catches him.
Janet Chandler plays Mabel’s sister Dorothy, the leading lady at the White Company ranch. This ranch not only has cattle, but oil wells, and the bad guys are threatening to blow up her pipeline unless she pays a blackmail fee.
Janet Chandler, living as Lillian Barrett in her private life after Hollywood, was born in Pine Bluffs, Arkansas. She became a teenage fashion model who was noticed by Hollywood, and she appeared in several movies in the early 1930’s. When the 1932 Olympics was held in Los Angeles, the Hollywood starlet served as the official hostess for the Arkansas athletes. After filming this adventure, she had a part in another movie, but was injured in an accident on the set. With only twelve motion picture credits, and a bright future in Hollywood, that accident caused her to leave Hollywood with her new husband, who was an investment broker with offices in New York City.
Cowboy Rex Lease is a Texas Ranger on assignment to crack a smuggling ring that is working between Texas and Mexico, and the ranch with the two ladies is the center of it all. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
