Gene Goes North
4 January 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Nifty Autry programmer. After all, where else can you catch a dog-sled, racing horses, a cattle stampede, and old cars, all in the same 60-minutes. Getting those wintertime snow shots really lends the movie a different appeal. Plus, Gene looks like he can drive a dog team as well as ride a horse. Seems like the bad guys are using a business front to smuggle furs across the Canadian border. Gene gets really ticked off when they murder his old friend Steve (Marshall), and so is on their trail. Burnette has some funny bits without getting too goofy, while it's an all-star line-up of bad guys—Woods, Strange, and Ingraham. The masquerade party lends color and excitement to a good script and seamless direction (Eason). No doubt about it, Gene's best years were with Republic as this energetic programmer demonstrates.
