Monday Movie Madness: Lone Texas Ranger


Hello, Posse!


We are going to get right to it. I've been out running around town all day and I'm already falling asleep so let get to the movie before I start snoring.


Today's Flick is Lone Texas Ranger staring Wild Bill Elliott. I'll admit this is one I have not seen yet, but I will have to get to it this week. I love Red Ryder stories. Lone Texas Ranger was released in 1945 and is an American Western. It was directed by Spencer Gordon Bennet and Robert Blake once again reprises his role at a young Native boy, Little Beaver. This film was number eight of twenty three Republic Red Ryder movies.


This story follows a crooked sheriff (Tom Chatterton) and his partner in crime, the local backsmith (Roy Barcroft). The pair have been robbing local businesses and framing innocent townsfolk for their crimes. They make a mistake when they move to rob a stage and put the blame on Red Ryder (Elliott). In the process the sheriff ends up getting killed. After his father's death, his son, Tommy (Jack McClendon) comes home and is asked to take over as sheriff. Tommy has no idea that his father was a criminal. He takes the job and vows to catch the man who killed his father. The blacksmith accuses Red Ryder and things take a nasty turn.

Movie Snack Recipe


With Thanksgiving coming later this week I thought a quick easy healthy movie snack would be good today. Why not try some Fruit Kabobs with Orange-Yogurt Dip recipe from Smuckers. (<--- click for recipe)


This tasty snack could not be simpler to make. You can get inventive and try loads of fruit combinations. I personally like a little honey drizzled over the yogurt too with tiny bit of granola sprinkled on top. I love that added crunch.
