Dialogue director. Frank Kowalski. Songs by M.K. Jerome and Jack Scholl: "In a Little County Town' (Foran) and "Ridin' On To Monterey' (Foran). Producer: Bryan Foy.

Copyright 26 April 1937 by Warner Bros Pictures, Inc. No recorded New York opening. U.S. release: 12 June 1937. No British or Australian theatrical release recorded. 6 reels. 55 minutes.

SYNOPSIS: A Government agent manages to join a gang that's robbing gold shipments.

COMMENT: Usually, producer Bryan Foy's "B" movies have something to recommend them, but not this one! It weighs in as a perfunctorily directed, low-budget western, with only two major claims on an indulgent viewer's attention, namely our personable singing hero, Dick Foran, and Ted McCord's admirably glossy photography. What on earth is a superb photographer of McCord's standing, doing on this bottom- budget vehicle? Producer BRYAN FOY (of the Seven Little Foys) must have twisted his arm!

And as for "Smoke", the so-called "wonder horse", what in heck is so wonderful about HIM?
