Editorial Reviews

Woodward "Tex" Ritter may be best-remembered for singing the title song in the classic 1952 Western, High Noon, but he had a long and successful career as one of Hollywood’s most-popular singing cowboys during the Thirties and Forties.

Here, on 5 DVDs, are 15 Tex Ritter classics, from his very first film in 1936 through some of his best-loved singing Westerns of the mid-1940s.

Many favorite character actors appear throughout – even a very young Rita Hayworth! No fan of Western films – or music – should be without this impressive set.

SONG OF THE GRINGO (1936) HEADIN’ FOR THE RIO GRANDE (1936) ARIZONA DAYS (1937) TROUBLE IN TEXAS (1937) HITTIN’ THE TRAIL (1937) SING, COWBOY, SING (1937) RIDERS OF THE ROCKIES (1937) THE MYSTERY OF THE HOODED HORSEMAN (1937) THE MAN FROM TEXAS (1939) RIDERS OF THE FRONTIER (1939) WESTBOUND STAGE (1939) ROLL, WAGONS, ROLL (1940) RIDIN’ THE CHEROKEE TRAIL (1941) THE WHISPERING SKULL (1944) ENEMY OF THE LAW (1945)

BONUS: Cowboy Commercials

John Ritter Interviews

SONG OF THE GRINGO (1936) – In his film debut, Tex tries to solve a murder by going undercover to join a tough gang and winds up on trial for murder. Al Jennings – a real-life cowboy and former bank robber - plays the Judge!

HEADIN’ FOR THE RIO GRANDE (1936) – Tex’s second film finds him in pursuit of a gang of ruthless cattle rustlers who run a protection racket. Silent comedian Snub Pollard is the cook.

ARIZONA DAYS (1937) – Tex joins a Wild West show but winds up in a tough position when he’s appointed county tax collector! British stage legend William Faversham (Becky Sharp) is the colorful owner of the show.

Disc Two

TROUBLE IN TEXAS (1937) – Someone is murdering rodeo stars with poison-tipped needles and Tex is on the hit list! Rita Cansino (later known as Rita Hayworth) plays Carmen, the cantina dancer.

HITTIN’ THE TRAIL (1937) – Tex is a horse-trader who inadvertently swaps horses with a fleeing outlaw, leading to mistaken identity. Hank Worden (The Searchers) plays Tex’s sidekick – Hank.

THE MAN FROM TEXAS (1939) – Tex squares off against a much-feared gunman named The Shooting Kid, but since Tex once helped him, they wind up joining forces against the bad guys. Legendary Indian-athlete Jim Thorpe has a small role as a posse rider.

ENEMY OF THE LAW (1945) – A map leading to a passel of stolen loot is printed on the bottom of an ex-con’s foot (!), so Tex must help the Rangers locate that loot – a ticklish situation. Harry Fraser (Chained For Life) directed.
