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.
