Trivia

Roy Rogers appears in this Gene Autry feature as one of the Sons of the Pioneers singing group. Better yet, he gets into a fight with Gene, which Gene wins, and then Roy yodels. Gene prophetically replies, "Keep singin'". See more »

Gene Autry, Roy Rogers and . . .Lon Chaney?
19 April 2003 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

Only a year after starring in the action serial THE PHANTOM EMPIRE, Gene Autry was already a singing cowboy star. In this film he costars with sidekick Smiley Burnette and a young Roy Rogers, who does not get individual billing but is grouped along with the Sons of the Pioneers. A highpoint of this film is Good Guy Gene ordering Bad Guy Roy to yodel at gunpoint! Also in the movie is a young (29) Lon Chaney as the manager of a gambling hall who shows a very wide yellow streak when some big city gangsters decide to muscle in. Don't worry, Gene and Smiley will save the day and have time to sing a few songs too.
