Cowboy Prankster
27 May 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I did a review of a Roy Rogers/Dale Evans film Utah and I said at the time that it wasn't one of their best. Before seeing Springtime In The Rockies I saw that Utah was a remake of this film. In terms of the story it isn't any better than Utah was.

Mainly because Gene Autry and Smiley Burnette decide to pull a dumb prank on Polly Rowles who's come west with some friends and thinks that a beat up piece of scrub land that Gene owns is her ranch. She actually owns a pretty nice spread that Gene is foreman of. But in her ignorance of the code of the west, Polly's bought some sheep and intends to raise them in cattle country.

Gene and Smiley get hoisted on their own petards as a very shrewd Al Bridge decides he can trick Rowles as well into selling the only piece of land she can legally sell. It was as dumb here as it was with Roy and Dale in Utah.

What makes this film better than Utah was the presence of the title song and another Autry standard You're The Only Star In My Blue Heaven that Gene sings in the film. Both sold quite a few 78 RPMs back in the day.

Gene's hardly a cowboy hero in this one, just an overage juvenile prankster who should have known better.
