The Wild Bunch - 26 MEN

Video thumbnail. Click to play

The Wild Bunch from Twenty-Six Men aired October 29, 1957. When a member of the Wild Bunch escapes from Ranger Clint Travis, he is fired. In order to redeem himself, he takes on the entire gang. It was based on true official files of the Arizona Rangers in the final days taming the old west. In 1901, a law enforcement organization was formed, known as the Arizona Rangers, consisting of twenty-six men: a captain, a lieutenant, four sergeants, and twenty privates. The Rangers preserved and maintained law and order in the Arizona Territory, making arrests of criminals in any part of Arizona. As one of the original members reportedly recalled: "The reason there was only twenty-six of us was because the Territory couldn't afford no more."

The Arizona Rangers still exist today as an all volunteer state wide Law Enforcement and Assist group. We are celebrating our 50th year.
