Grand National's trio western
16 May 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

It is obvious that poverty row Grand National studio was trying to put together a formula western trio to compete with Republic's Three Mesquiteers in Trigger Pals. Musical and nightclub singer Art Jarrett was teamed with Lee Powell and Al St.John for a trio that apparently there was no further demand for. Besides Grand National had Tex Ritter as a singing cowboy already.

But it was Mrs. Tex Ritter Dorothy Fay who appears in this film. She and Jarrett inherit a ranch where Jarrett was previously foreman that has been plagued by rustling. I don't think I have to elaborate further except that there is someone in the picture who wants to buy the ranch.

Nothing terribly original here. Jarrett has some nice notes, but has trouble fitting the cowboy hero mold. Al St.John and Nina Guilbert playing Fay's aunt have some funny moments.

Decent enough B western for those who like the genre.
