The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

Hank and I were beginning to get worried when you didn't show up, Wolf. We thought maybe you'd run into the law again.
I did. The prison break worked out just as you had it framed, but I ran smack into a sheriff's posse. If I hadn't caught the hind end of the Limited and traded places with Autry, I'd be stretched with a rope by now.
This Autry is a radio singer, isn't he?
He was until I knocked him out and threw his body out the train window. Now Wolf Benson's dead and I'm Gene Autry!

This is a fairly early film from Gene Autrys career.I bought the VHS by air mail.I have to say that the manufacturers have copied from a very battered print.So much so that the film is stated to be 59 minutes in length but in fact is only 53 minutes.I have to say that the fact that it is entertaining is despite not because of the screenplay.The plot hinges on the fact that nobody can recognized Autry and therefore accept that because an escaped murderer has changed clothes with him he is the murderer and vice versa.At the end there is a fight on a moving car which defies logic.However there are the usual quota of songs,although i believe that one or two may be missing.To conclude it will entertain you if you are an enthusiast of Western films.Otherwise you would be better off spending 53minutes digging in the garden.
