Description by OLDIES.com:
Jim Perkins discovers a large number of his horses have been stolen, and he suspects a neighboring rancher. His new business partner Glenn Oliver arrives to discover a range war about to erupt. Perkins is murdered and Glenn, convinced that the rustlers are responsible for the killing, sets off determined to see justice served.
Stuntman and younger brother of cowboy hero Ken Maynard, Kermit Maynard had an impressive acting career in his own right, appearing in over 300 movies and television shows over five decades.
Cowboy star Kermit Maynard's series for Ambassador Films was evenly divided between Northwest-Mountie adventures and traditional westerns. Firmly ensconced in the latter category is THE FIGHTING TEXAN, with Maynard cast as strong silent frontiersman Glenn. Riding into the middle of a range war, Glenn rises to the defense of cattle rancher Walton (Frank LaRue) when the latter is framed for murder. Our hero is nearly gunned down himself by the minions of all-around villain Hadley (Ed Cassidy) before he's able to prove Walton's innocence. The heroine in THE FIGHTING TEXAN is played by Elaine Shepard, who later abandoned hoss operas to become an international newspaper correspondent.
