Goofs

Keep an eye on that early scene when the good guy trio stop to read the Private Property sign on the Black Hawk Mining property. A warning shot knocks Stubby's hat off from the direction in which he's facing, but all three turn left to see a couple of henchmen who were responsible. See more »

Of Course Tex Was A Boy Scout
8 September 2006 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Tex Ritter is on the trail of a gang of outlaws who've been robbing mines in the area of a Boy Scout camp. When Tex and his two sidekicks. Horace Murphy and Snub Pollard, ride in they're in like flynn. Especially after Tex shows his beaver badge to young Tommy Bupp because back in the day Ritter was a Boy Scout. As every clean living cowboy hero was or ought to have been.

Things don't go as smooth for Tex with Tommy's sister Marjorie Reynolds, but with Tommy putting in a good word for him, it all works out in the end.

This film was done for short lived Grand National Studios and while it lasted Tex was their B picture western star. Ritter had a nice pleasant singing voice, too bad he wasn't at Republic like Roy and Gene were.

The film really was a big commercial for the Boy Scouts and I'll bet recruiting went up after Tex Ritter made use of the Scouts in nailing the bad guys. They were sure more help than his two dimwit sidekicks.
