Average, with Compensations
19 August 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

No need to recap the plot since others have done it well. To me this was an average Autry programmer, nothing special, but with the proved Autry mix. The two highlights are, of course, the novel stagecoach race and Gene's tuneful version of the durable "Let Me Call You Sweetheart". Polly Moran makes very attractive eye-candy, along with Pert Kelton of TV's early edition of The Honeymooners (1951-52). Of course, the girls are never given much to do in these oaters except look pretty. But oh my gosh, that poor swayback horse really is a sight. Poor devil, I wonder how he got that way. Note that Frog is less clownish than usual, and does the straight parts really well. What an all-around talented performer he was. Good also to see familiar bad guy LeRoy Mason (Pomeroy ) picking up a payday. However, unlike many other Autry entries, this one never leaves LA area scrublands, though the rodeo stock footage does compensate some. Anyway, the 60-minutes may not be anything special, still it's enough to keep old front row kids like me happy.

A "5" on the matinée scale.
