Fresh From the San Francisco Opera Company
22 March 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A very short lived outfit called Spectrum Pictures gave The Singing Buckaroo to the movie-going public in 1937. This was an attempt to make concert singer Fred Scott into a movie cowboy. The results you'll judge if you see this film.

The plot is a pip. Victoria Vinton and her father William Favesham are fugitives with Favesham wanted for embezzlement and Vinton as his accomplice. But they did't do it really, no what he did was take the money so that villain Charles Kaley couldn't do it. Scott who owns a ranch takes Vinton in and foils the dastardly plot that Kaley has to get the money and run.

Needless to say Scott does not come off a good singing cowboy hero. Other studios even the poverty row ones got their singing cowboys from the ranks of country music. But Spectrum got their's from the San Francisco Opera company where Scott was a leading baritone. The results are ludicrous.
