| They come together as a team
Hollywood didn't go in for continuity too much and the 3 Mesquiteer series probably least of all. Their stories took place in the old west and modern times and of course with many different Mesquiteers. Under Texas Skies is the least typical of Mesquiteer stories however.

Usually the three would be riding into some location, assess the situation and before the film was over clean up the problem. Not so in Under Texas Skies. They begin as individuals and come together as a team by the film's end.

Robert Livingston's father is the sheriff and he has a crooked deputy in Henry Brandon. Brandon is the secret head of a group of outlaws who among other things control a pass that the cattlemen have to take to get to water. Brandon shoots the sheriff and has the blame thrown on Bob Steele who is a fugitive through most of the film.

Livingston and Steele are enemies through most of the film, they only come together after Livingston becomes convinced of Steele's innocence. Hanging around is itinerant peddler Rufe Davis who joins up with them as he's kind of caught up in the action.

Under Texas Skies is not within the 3 Mesquiteer parameter, but it's still a nice western.
