Tonto Basin Outlaws
The Range Busters returned to bust a few more ranges in Tonto Basin Outlaws. As ever, the three protagonists are played by Ray "Crash" Corrigan, John "Dusty" King and Max "Alibi" Terhune. The story takes off when Corrigan takes a job as manager of the Tonto Basin hotel. From here, he intends to observe the comings and goings of the local cowpokes, thereby hoping to uncover a gang of rustlers who've terrorizing the countryside. Making life miserable for Corrigan and his fellow Range Busters is the unwelcome snoopery of Jane (Jan Wiley), a big-city reporter assigned to cover the rustling story for her paper. The fact that the film takes place in 1898, when girl reporters were as scarce as hen's teeth (and almost as pretty), didn't seem to phase the screenwriters a bit; if the viewer wanted logic, the viewer was in the wrong theatre. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

The Trail of the Silver Spurs
Trail of the Silver Spurs was Monogram's first "Range Riders" entry for 1941. As in previous episodes, the three heroes are portrayed by Ray "Crash" Corrigan, John "Dusty" King and Max "Alibi" Terhune. The plot concerns the efforts by the Range Riders to "exorcise" an alleged ghost town. It is giving nothing away to reveal that the spooky goings-on are the handiwork of half-mad prospector Nordick (Milburn Morante), who hopes to scare away all potential visitors so that he can work the local gold mine himself. Since Nordick isn't really a villain, the heroes take pity upon him and cook up a method that will allow him to come out ahead--and to entrap the film's real villain, who has been using the ghost town as his headquarters. Dorothy Short, wife of actor-stuntman Dave O'Brien, is the heroine, while future singing cowboy star Eddie Dean shows up in a bit. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
