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

Singing cowboy Ray Whitley (Tim's sidekick, Smokey) is famous for writing Gene Autry's signature song, 'Back in the Saddle' again. According to Hollywood lore, Whitely received a phone call from RKO one morning asking him to write a song for a movie he'd be appearing in later that same day. He wrote the song in just a few minutes and performed it in the film that afternoon. Soon after that, Gene Autry heard it and used it in his next movie. It became Autry's theme song from then on.

The Robin Hood Of Manzanita
4 September 2011 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Come On Danger finds Tim Holt once again a Texas Ranger on a dangerous assignment. In this case to bring in a notorious outlaw leader. But the twist here is that the outlaw leader is the lovely Frances Neal who would in real life wed Van Heflin and abandon her own movie career.

Tim's sidekicks Lee White and Ray Whitley come along unofficially because they're on suspension from the Texas Rangers following a saloon brawl. But a little investigation on Holt's behalf shows him that Ms. Neal is actually a female Robin Hood who is just taking back what some thieving politicians led by tax collector Karl Hackett has been pilfering from all the honest citizens of Manzanita, Texas.

Come On Danger follows the usual run of Tim Holt westerns, nicely constructed stories with a believable cowboy hero, the very best of them in my opinion.
