"Woodward 'Tex' Ritter (father of John) was born in a small unincorporated East Texas town in 1905 and died in Nashville just 10 days shy of his 69th birthday.
Perhaps best remembered for his vocal on the HIGH NOON (1952) theme song, this 'B' western singing cowboy also recorded many other high-charting C&W singles. In 1970 he made an unsuccessful bid for a Tennessee U.S. Senate seat.
From 1944 to '45, Ritter was in eight Texas Rangers programmers with Dave O'Brien and Guy Wilkerson. One of these is featured in this small collection of unrestored westerns from budget brand CRITIC'S CHOICE.
TEX RITTER TRIPLE FEATURE #3 contains "Frontier Town" (1938), "Gangsters of the Frontier" (1944) and "Hitting the Trail" (1937).
