Murder to get the Girl

Texas Ranger Jeff Hayden, played by Johnny Mack Brown, rides into town just as Clay Wheeler, played by Ted Adams, is outside the jail rousing up the local townsmen. It seems that good old Sheriff Jim was just shot in the back by a shady outlaw that seems to be terrorizing the town.

Local rich guy Clay Wheeler is so upset with the dirty rascal who shot the Sheriff that he volunteers to become a temporary Law Man and help the town hunt down the outlaws that killed the Sheriff. . . . But of course, one of the men standing by watching all of this, is Texas Ranger Jeff Hayden, and he makes himself known to Clay and the crowd. Next, the town doctor is cut down by the same varmints, and Clay seems to have his hands full trying to discover who the bad guy is.

There are two women folk in this adventure. First, we meet sexy and sultry Spanish dancer Lolita, played by Anita Camargo, who is impressing everyone in the saloon with her song and dance. The other gal is the object of both the Texas Ranger and the rich guy in town. Young Letty Winston, played by Louise Stanley, has just returned from school back East to discover that her father has been murdered and she is alone on her ranch.

What she doesn’t know is that while she was away at school rich guy Clay Wheeler quietly loaned her papa money and has enough liens on the homestead that she no longer owns anything - Clay owns it all. He owns all the land and all of the ranch, and now he wants to own Letty! He makes no secret about his desire to marry the young girl, but she has eyes for the new Texas Ranger that came to town.

Of course, by this time in the plot we all know that rich guy Clay Wheeler is the brains behind all of the killing, and it looks like innocent little Letty will never figure this out, let alone the Texas Ranger. Bad guy Clay seems to have everything and everyone in his control except Letty and Ranger Jeff, and it is just a matter of time and manipulation before he has the Ranger eating out of his hand and new wife Letty on his arm. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with just gobs of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
