[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 ...

The Real Gene Autry
19 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

An outlaw named Wolf Benson escaping from a posse boards a train from horseback. On the train is radio singing cowboy Gene Autry on the way to an engagement. Benson slugs Gene and changes clothes with him and throws the unconscious Gene off the moving train.

Fortunately our singing hero doesn't break his neck from the fall and he gets rescued by a couple of itinerant actors played by Smiley Burnette and Earl Hodgins. From then on it's a merry chase through the west as Gene tries to prove who he is and foil the dastardly plans of the man who's stolen his identity.

One of the funnier scenes in the film is when all three of them, Autry, Burnette, and Hodgins are locked up in jail with Autry insisting who he is and one of the deputies saying if you're Gene Autry, I'm Bing Crosby.

But the plot situations are forced to say the least and I can't believe the folks out west are such a gang of rubes they don't know Gene Autry.

But Gene does get to warble a couple of nice, but forgettable cowboy ballads and he even gets a duet partner in the form of co-star Frances Grant. Unlike Roy Rogers who married his regular co-star Dale Evans and sang many a duet with her, Gene was usually a solo act in the musical department.

Strictly for those who love Gene and the singing cowboy genre.
