Kay's Husband | Virginia, U.S.A. | 01/24/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)


An early black & white movie with both Gene and 'Frog' looking so skinny both are in bad need of a meal.

This western has a plot as thin as broth using cattle and medicine shows as its main thrust. The cattle, having contagious Texas cattle fever, are attempting to cross a country line in spite of a quarantine law being put in existence. County sheriff Ed Miller and a deputy are later shot from their saddles by the 'black hats' and of natural course Mr. Autry will run for the open office, as no other stalwart citizen is without fear of doing so.

But wait a minute, shortly before being duly elected temporary sheriff, Gene is being accused of shooting and killing the previous sheriff. But the election goes off as scheduled and our man is the winner. From here things move very quickly, as events oft times do in a B western, with our boys last seen heading down the trail in the aforementioned medicine wagon singing one final song, "...heading back to my guns and guitars". Well, Gene is riding in the wagon, with Frog running behind trying to catch up. Yeah, I know I left out a few things, but that is why you want to see this one for yourselves.

If you enjoy the earlier westerns (1930's & 1940's) you will enjoy this 58 minute job, but if you don't care for those movies, or land sakes alive, not even Gene, then you may be adrift with this one. Myself I enjoy these older westerns made before I hatched (1943) finding them full of great entertainment.

This early Autry venture certainly has a lot of singing and tap dancing along the way; and later some stray bullets, but as always, the 'black' hats give way to the 'white' hats as you just knew they would.

Smooth trails, pards.

Semper Fi."
