Description by OLDIES.com:

Texas Ranger Tex Duncan goes undercover, joining Doc Aikman's Medicine Show as a sharpshooter so that he can investigate a series of robberies that seems to follow the troupe from town to town. Before he can discover who is involved in the crimes, his cover is blown. The outlaws gun down an innocent man and make it appear that the bullet came from Tex's pistol. With Tex behind bars for murder, the crooks prepare to rob the Wells Fargo office.

Executive producer Stan Laurel presents operatic baritone Fred Scott starring as Texas Ranger Tex Duncan in this Spectrum Pictures production. Singing cowboy Scott headlined 13 Spectrum westerns beginning with Romance Of The Range (1936) and retired after starring in PRC's Rodeo Rhythm (1942). He then went on to a successful career as a Los Angeles realtor and retired to Palm Springs where he was a board member of the Palm Springs Art Museum.

Product Description:

The seventh of thirteen singing Westerns to star former opera baritone Fred Scott, THE RANGER'S ROUNDUP was also the first of three Scott vehicles to be executive produced by comedian Stan Laurel. No hands off producer, Laurel apparently suggested several bits of business for comic relief Al St. John, whose popular "Fuzzy Q. Jones" character originated with the Scott series. Ranger Tex Duncan (Scott) joins a travelling medicine show disguised as a singer, a plot development that allowed the hero to warble such ditties as The Terror of Termite Valley and Just a Spanish Shawl, both by Lew Porter who also appeared in the film as a piano player. Going undercover, Tex is able to get close to a gang of express office robbers, discovering the hard way that Burton, the office manager (Richard Cramer), is the leader of the gang. Blonde Christine McIntyre made her screen debut in this film as Mary, a singing waitress and Scott's love interest. In later years, Miss McIntyre was only too happy to share her memories of the 20 B-Westerns she would end up making but refused to answer questions regarding her better known work with The Three Stooges.
