TEX GRANGER
MIDNIGHT RIDER OF THE PLAINS
15 CHAPTER SERIAL
1948

Tex Granger is a Columbia movie serial featuring the title character as a masked cowboy referred to as The Midnight Rider of the Plains in the serial's subtitle. Tex Granger was played by Robert Kellard. It was based on a character from the comic Calling All Boys while the plot was taken from The Last Frontier (1926), which was itself based on the novel of the same name by Courtney Ryley Cooper.

PLOT:
Tex Granger, on his way to Three Butes, comes across a young boy guarding a gold shipment which he has just rescued from a stagecoach. Tex and young Timmy turn the gold over to the crooked Rance Carson who uses his loan office to carry out crooked land deals. When Blaze shows up in town Carson has him appointed town marshal, intending to use him as his enforcer, but Blaze has higher aspirations, and soon the town is ablaze with gunfire and plots as Blaze, Carson, and Reno and his gang battle each other and the citizens.
Meanwhile, persuaded by Helen Kent, Tex buys the local newspaper, dons a mask and becomes "The Midnight Rider of the Plains" and works against all three gang factions to bring law and order to Three Buttes.
