| Another Undercover Ranger
In Alias: The Bad Man a really nasty villain played by Frank Mayo gets a range feud going between Ken Maynard's father and Virginia Brown Faire's daughter adjoining ranchowners. Each is having cattle rustled and each thinks the other might be responsible. But when Mayo shoots them both and makes it look like they shot it out with each other, that calls for intervention.

Which is what Maynard had planned in any event. Maynard is a Texas Ranger and he gets a summons from his father, but arrives too late to prevent his father's demise. So not being known in the area, Maynard pretends to be a wanted desperado to find out who's behind it all.

With Mayo's intentions on the girl as well as stealing cattle and Maynard getting interested as well, Mayo performs his villainy in the best Snidely Whiplash tradition.

Long time character actor Irving Bacon plays the sidekick role and Roscoe Ates must not have been available because he's supposed to be a stutterer. Irving is called 'Repeater' by his fellow Ranges including Maynard.

Nothing new here, but enjoyable enough for B western fans.
