Editorial Reviews

The Range Busters, a trio of Texas cowboys, join the U.S. Army, take a herd of cattle to the Philippines. Before they leave they discover three spies trying to steal the horses, and their cook is a Japanese spy but escapes. In the Phillipines they see their cook and a German agent plotting, break that up and learn that another Texas rancher is the Axis contact. They return to Texas to take care of him, and then Pearl Harbor is attacked.

This is a d-grade oater and nothing more. The other so-called reviews are duplicate frauds meant to hype the movie, though why one would devote one's life to that must be pretty pitiful.

Wow! That's about all I can say about this surreally inane masterpiece. My jaw was on the floor five minutes in.

The opening scene depicts a cowboy singing, "Me and my pony, we're the best of friends..." while his partner kneels close by twirlling his gun around. Next thing you know our heroes are shooting holes into posters of Hitler and Mussolini that have inexplicably been hung on a fence while an unmanned dummy sits nearby on a pile of lumber, egging them on. "Part their hair in the middle," the dummy exclaims.

Seriously, that's how the movie starts. I mean... wow.

First of all you need to understand the times when this movie was made. It was released shortly after Pearl Harbor and everyone was looking for a jap under their bed. I thought the movie was fun because it reminded me of the westerns we watched when I was a little kid. Good guys and bad guys.

Format: DVD
Monogram Pictures presents "TEXAS TO BATAAN/TUMBLEDOWN RANCH IN ARIZONA" (1941/1942) (116 mins/B&W) (Fully Restored/Dolby Digitally Remastered) -- With the success of Republic's Three Mesquiteers, several forces came together around 1940 to develop a new 'trigger trio' for the screen --- The star was Ray 'Crash' Corrigan, a producer named George W. Weeks and Monogram Pictures --- With a character of his own name. Ray starred in 20 of the 24 films in this series between 1940 and 1943 --- The Range Busters was clearly a lower budget copy of the Mesquiteers --- Big, muscular Ray 'Crash' Corrigan was the lead, the second lead was John 'Dusty' King, a big band singer (Ben Bernie Orchestra) with a reasonably good baritone, who would vocalize a tune or two in each film --- And comic relief was in the hands of ventriloquist Max 'Alibi' Terhune (and his wise-cracking dummy Elmer --- Monogram would distribute the Range Busters but not be directly involved in the productions --- The deal gave Corrigan a substantial share of the film profits (in an interview years later, Ray said he received 50%).

The first film of this double feature - "TEXAS TO BATAAN" (16 October 1942) (56 mins/B&W)

Under the production staff of:
Robert Emmett Tansey - Director

I gave this 3 stars because I enjoy watching old black & white movies from the 40s, if I had to base it on modern standards and special effects I would have given it only 2 stars. This is one of the Range Buster series. The owner of a ranch gets an Army contract to take a herd of horses to the Philippines. Three of the range busters are selected to take the herd to the Philippines, in the meantime they capture some spies who are trying to steal the horses and discover that the ranch cook is a Japanese spy who manages to escape. In a cafe in the Philippines they see the cook and a German spy and overhear who the main spy back in the States is. They then set out to bust up the international spy ring.

This movie was corny to the max! A grade b movie that rates a D-. It deals with Texas cowboys who round up horses for the cavalry to use in The Philippines just prior to December 7 1941. Yes there were US Cavalry troops in The Philippines. In fact during the Battle for Bataan, they staged their last cavalry charge. The movie dealt with spies and cowboys rounding them up and has a predictable ending. Expected more. By the way 2 of the corniest scenes involve one main character singing first to his horse and later to his gal, about his horse. They were hilarious scenes. There is also a ventriloquist's dummy who adds unfunny commentary. Good for laughs.

The movie has an original premise. A trio of cheapie B movie cowboys take a shipload of horses to the Philippines for the army right before Pearl Harbor. Before and after the trip they have to fight a local fifth column trying to sabotage the war effort. The movie was a quicky designed to take advantage of Bataan being in the news. I really enjoy films of this era not for the plots or acting but because of what they reveal about attitudes on the home-front early in the war. if you want a good film from the same era watch Bataan with Robert Taylor or They Were Expendable
