Synopsis

Border Caballero
Dick Tracy -- or rather his future portrayer Ralph Byrd -- found himself in the unfamiliar surroundings of the range in this Tim McCoy Western from low-budget company Puritan Pictures. Byrd played Tex Weaver, a G-man going undercover as a bank robber in order to flush out gang leader Buff Brayden (Ted Adams). Assisted by former agent Tim Ross (McCoy) and kindhearted gangster's moll Goldie Harris (Lois January), Tex learns of a forthcoming raid on the Bordertown bank. Unfortunately, while appearing with Tim's medicine show, Tex is killed by a bullet fired offstage simultaneously with Tim's. Accused of murder, Tim makes his escape, rejoins the Justice Department, and manages to not only foil the bank heist but also gather enough evidence to convict both Brayden and his boss, bank examiner Willey Taggart (J. Frank Glendon). McCoy, who had joined Puritan in 1935 after leaving Columbia Pictures, would make ten Westerns for the little company, all of them above-average oaters considering their limited budgets of only 10,000 dollars a picture. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, Rovi

Texas Wildcats
In this exciting western, a mysterious masked hero helps tired settlers protect their lands from the wicked land-grabbers. One of the grabbers attempts to kill the crusader by offering a substantial reward for his capture. He does this so he can grab the land of one homesteader who is unknowingly sitting upon a mother lode of gold. To access the land, he tries to convince his own son to marry the settler's daughter. Fortunately the hero intervenes and the villain fails all-around. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
