| It's A Package Deal
Tex Ritter and his two sidekicks Horace Murphy and Snub Pollard are Arizona Rangers in Riders Of The Rockies, a film which aspires to spoof some operetta type films that were being done at bigger studios.

First of all Ritter gets an opening scene ballad that would have been right at home in a Nelson Eddy picture with Ritter leading a band of his Ranger buddies. Later on in a saloon Tex gets to do a duet with a Jeanette MacDonald like soprano in Louise Stanley. What must Jeanette and Nelson have thought of this film?

Sidekicks in westerns are usually played for laughs and they sure are funny here. But the only explanation for Pollard and Murphy winding up as Rangers is that it's a package deal, you get Ritter, but you have to endure these two.

And while Tex is undercover over in Mexico trying to get a line on a gang of rustlers, these two nearly gum up the works pretty good.

There's a bit more satirical type humor in Riders Of The Rockies than you find in most B westerns from Poverty Row studios.
