Neville Brand played a former Union Army officer who came to the Rangers with something of a checkered past, which amused his younger partners. Riley, a gentle soul by nature, had been raised by Indians and so was the best tracker. Cooper was from New Orleans and had the reputation of a fast gun, although not as a gunfighter.

Character Bio


REESE BENNETT was the oldest of the Laredo Rangers. He joined up to get immunity from a prior life of crime in other states. An old cohort described him as “Tough, plenty tough, maybe not too smart, but tough.” and “When I knew him, he could swipe an egg out from under a chicken without making it cackle.” [Ep. 8 “The Golden Trail”] In describing his family life, Reese said, “My mother took in washing, my father took the money.” [Ep. 47 “The Short, Happy Fatherhood of Reese Bennett”.] Reese was constantly being duped into the schemes of the others, especially Chad who always had a plan to avoid work, strike it rich or make time with a lady. Reese was constantly reminding the others how proud they should be to be Rangers. No matter how tough things got, Reese felt the $40 a month and the prestige he got as a Ranger made life worthwhile and made up for all of life's other disappointments.
