Good Enough Autry Vehicle
1 April 2010 | by (The Lonesome Prairie) – See all my reviews

After talking an angry mob out of killing a rancher for bringing sheep into the community, Gene Autry is alarmed to find out that the livestock in question has been pawned off on his employer, an eastern tenderfoot, who's never even been to the ranch and who happens to be a lady. Gene tries to scare her back east before the neighbors discover the sheep, while nasty villains plot to swindle her out of her spread.

After scores of movies that leave the viewer (at least the ones who don't know anything about ranching) wondering why cowboys always want to kill sheep farmers, finally a film comes along that gives us the answer, Autry: "cause the sheep eat the ruts!"

As far as the movie goes, it's pretty typical, but pleasant enough entertainment. The cast, including Smiley Burnette, sings some good songs and female lead Polly Rowles is quite appealing.
