Storyline

Ranger Jack Mason is sent to Manzanita to bring in Ann Jordan, head of the Jordan gang, reputed to have murdered a rancher and stolen his herd. Mason helps her out during an ambush and, gaining her confidence, hears her side of the story - that tax collector Ott Ramsey, in cahoots with the law, is illegally increasing taxes on ranches and foreclosing on them, and was responsible for the murder in question. Learning she's telling the truth, Mason tries to put her under protective custody but must change his plans when Ramsey and his gang kidnap her and plan her murder.

Trivia

A four-minute-long scene near the end of Come on Danger is an exact copy - line for line and shot for shot - of a scene in George O'Brien's The Renegade Ranger. Watch for the scenes at the 50-minute mark in both movies. It begins with the hero and two sidekicks listening outside a window as the villain discusses murdering the heroine, followed by a fight in which the villains' cook comes out of the kitchen and disrupts the fight by cutting the rope which holds up a suspended wagon-wheel chandelier. In Come on Danger the hero is Tim Holt and his sidekicks are Ray Whitley and Lee White. In The Renegade Ranger the hero is George O'Brien and his sidekicks are Ray Whitley (again) - and none other than Tim Holt. In both versions, Tim Holt pretends to be injured and staggers passed two guards, then he falls over while his two companions jump the distracted guards. See more »

very average western
5 February 2019 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

This shortie was kind of mid-career for cowboy Mason (Tim Holt). He's been sent to find Ann Jordan, who is rumored to be commiting murder and various other crimes. The film opens in a bar with a jug band playing, and some rough and tough gang make it plain that they don't like music, and start a good old fashioned bar brawl. It's the usual "Oat burner", with lots of gun fights on horseback, chases through the desert. Apparently, this has almost the same plot as "Renegade Ranger", another, earlier RKO film from ten years back. Frances Neal is "Jordan"... and she only had a few roles... looks like her biggest role was as MRS. Van Heflin. The bad guys are onto Mason, but he still has a trick or two up his sleeve. Directed by Ed Killy, who had made TEN films with Tim Holt. the acting here is all so-so. story and directing about the same. so much singing. probably should have jazzed up the story instead of spending so much time on the music. Showing on Turner Classics. the usual western. Holt died quite young from cancer.
