| Not perfect but excellent, with veteran cowboy players in unusual roles
Ernie Adams has a very different role here, and he grabs his opportunity with both hands and proves a stand-out!

Budd Buster, here billed as Bud, also plays a very different character from his usual, and again almost steals the entire movie.

Bob Steele is the nominal star, and is, as usual, stalwart, strong, dependable, and full of action. He is such a joy to watch as a cowboy, and especially on horseback -- even mounting his cayuse -- but in his fight scenes, every time I see him battling a villain who is usually bigger than he is, I think, "He could have been a champion boxer."

Very athletic, very watchable, and very much a pleasure to see in action.

The story in "The Gun Ranger" is almost convoluted, there are so many twists, and often the presumed bad guys aren't quite what they seem, and sometimes the presumed good guys aren't either.

Incredibly prolific writer George Plympton is credited as adapter of the story by the not-so-active Homer King Gordon and they have created a good script, crammed full with action and excitement.

Their story is helped immensely by one of the best casts of Western performers, too many of whom don't even get screen credit, such as the talented-far-beyond-his reputation Hal Taliaferro.

There is a fair print at YouTube and I highly recommend "The Gun Ranger."
