Quotes

[reading a wanted poster]
Prof. Ezekial Daniels: Five thousand dollar reward for the capture of Gene Autry, wanted dead or alive for the murder of Jefferson Lee.
Frog Millhouse: Jefferson Lee? Don't he own that ranch where we're goin'?
Gene Autry aka Tex Smith: yes and he was one of the best friends I ever had. Wolf Benson must have gone to the dude ranch masquerading as me and when Lee couldn't be fooled he killed him.
Prof. Ezekial Daniels: Well, the murderer has certainly placed you in an exceedingly dangerous position, Gene. You have to capture him before you can identify ...

Young Gene Autry
20 May 2005 | by (london) – See all my reviews

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.
