Light-hearted western fare with Gene Autry...
7 October 2001 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

1st watched 10/7/2001 - 6 out of 10(Dir-Mack V. Wright): Light-hearted western fare with Gene Autry and his sidekick 'Frog' mistakenly seen as outlaws who restled cattled, but end up being the heroes in the end. Good combination of music, action, a little romance, and the good repertoire between Autry and Frog make for a good time had for all. This is the 1st Gene Autry flick that I've seen and I'm hooked. Without the music, it would be pretty boring and the plot isn't that detailed but we don't really care because we know the good guys will win out in the end. Autry isn't the greatest actor but he has a good set of side kicks that help out this flaw, and besides when things start looking rough he can just pick up the guitar and get us all singing and toe-tapping. I see why my dad used to like this guy, and I'm glad they've preserved some of his films for us new guys to see.
