In his final release of 1940, Monogram's answer to Gene Autry, Tex Ritter, played a United States Marshal assigned to investigate a gang that is taking advantage of the prison honor system. Helping unsuspecting prisoners escape, the gang enlists them in bank holdups. As the escapee demands money, a member of the gang shoots him down to claim the reward money. Tex, however, deputizes a couple of inmates and can soon bring the gang to justice. A very minor entry in the Ritter oeuvre, Rollin' Home to Texas featured future Western lead Eddie Dean as a sheriff. Ritter performed seven musical numbers, including Under Texas Stars and Wabash Cannon Ball.
