Range Beyond the Blue is a 1947 western film directed by Ray Taylor. Part of Republic Pictures' Eddie Dean series, the film features Eddie Dean (as self) as he tries to help Margie Rodgers' (Helen Mowery) stage line. Each time one of Margie's stages has a shipment of gold, it is held up, which leads Margie's uncle, Henry Rodgers (Ted Adams), to believe that the bandits are receiving advance warning. In order to find out what's going on, Eddie Dean goes undercover as a bandit and discovers that Henry is the one giving the bandits advance warning. Henry has been offering to buy Margie's stage line for some time, and his conspiracy is a part of plan to force Margie's insurance premiums up thereby forcing her out of business. Eddie confronts Henry with this information but is apparently killed. Henry then begins to put together a plan to finally force Margie to sell her stage line business over to him.
