Easily one of Tex Ritter's favorite movies, Alpha's version of Tex Rides With the Boy Scouts is a winner. Featuring great cover art, it also includes the dedication prologue ("to all those boy scouts..we dedicate this picture to you!") which ex-boy scouts can use if they need to brush up on thier scout oath. (Most VHS versions deleted this for some reason.)
Marjorie Reynolds, about five years before her role in the Christmas classic "Holiday Inn" shows up and Snub Pollard's shenanigans at the square dance are alone worth the price of admisson.
PS- Contrary to movie legend, that fellow at the square dance is NOT really Wild Bill Hickock, but merely Rodney Orowitz, a paint salesman from Canoga Park who wandered in during the filming. Despite his resemblance to Hickock, he is most fondly recalled for his vocal imitations of Guy Kibee, which he used to do at Hollywood parties.
