There's just enough of a story to hang on this picture to keep it coherent. Otherwise, it's Hoot Gibson displaying his easy-going charm and some excellent footage of the action at the rodeo at Soldier's Field in Chicago. It's a lot of fun. This was the era when B movie western stars like Hoot deservedly made a lot of money for the studios, and paid for the chancier A pictures.
But sound was coming onto the scene, and the studio heads all knew it would not survive. And Uncle Carl Laemmle at Universal decided the way to make the transition was to fire stars like Hoot Gibson and start over again. It was a mistake and Gibson's career continued to flourish for many a moon afterwards
