Gene and the Sons of the Pioneers to the Rescue
2 June 2004 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

Eleanor Spencer, a nightclub singer, witnesses racketeer Scarlotti shoot down rival gangster Pearl. Spencer takes a run for it with Scarlotti and every newspaper from Chicago to Los Angeles posting notices for her testimony. She ends up in Turquoise City, where bar owner Simms recognizes her and decides to hold her for Scarlotti, who he hopes will give him money for turning her over. Simms is being watched closely by Sheriff Gene Autry, who decides to protect her. It's up to Gene and the Sons of the Pioneers (who held up Gene and a group of bus passengers in order to get some food money, even though they really wanted a radio contract) to save Eleanor from being taken by Scarlotti's thugs (who made the cross country trek). Very enjoyable western thats very typical of an early Autry Republic. Also interesting to see Roy Rogers holding up Gene early in the movie (something you don't see everyday). The climax was a little weak, and the songs were not integrated too well with the movie (Autry's country voice and Manning's operatic did not blend well in the barroom song). Rating, based on B-westerns, 8.
