Tales of the Texas Rangers, Vol. 1
“Texas, more than 260,000 square miles! And fiftymen who make up the oldest and most famous law enforcement body in NorthAmerica!”
Like its predecessor, Dragnet, Talesof the Texas Rangers adapted actual police cases for its broadcasts.Leading each week’s investigation was Texas Ranger Jayce Pearson, portrayed bymovie star Joel McCrea. Because the stories were set in the present, Pearsonused the latest scientific techniques to identify criminals. Unlike Joe Friday,Pearson didn’t have a regular partner, typically working with the local sheriffinstead. Working environments would range from big cities to isolatedwilderness areas that could only be reached on horseback. Produced and directedby Stacy Keach Sr., Tales of the Texas Rangers ran from 1950to 1952 and featured radio’s top supporting actors. Its popularity spawned a1955 Saturday morning television series starring Willard Parker and HarryLauter broadcast on CBS until 1958.
