Another decent Tom Keene western in which he must help the pretty gal hold onto the ranch. In this case it's Rochelle Hudson, like Keene a dedicated actor who never quite made the transition to the top ranks, although both are kindly remembered by the fans.

These early RKO B westerns (in fact, Radio-Pathe, with the Pathe rooster crowing atop the world) are technically interesting pieces. They are simply plotted and written, but with plenty of real talent behind the camera and the prints that show up on Turner Classic Movies show off the fine cinematography of Ted McCord and daring stunt work of Yakima Canutt. Fans of the singing cowboy subgenre should have a look, because this is how they started, with the rough buckaroos relaxing at the camp fire or serenading a senorita.
