Storyline

Gene and the boys arrive at their new ranch to find themselves in the dairy business instead of punching cows. They soon become victims of Doc Blair's outlaw gang that is keeping all milk shipments from reaching the market. Gene eventually learns that Blairs's men get their instructions in code when his medical bulletins are read over the radio. Gene obtains the code and hopes a false message will lead the gang into a trap. Written by Maurice VanAuken <mvanauken@a1access.net>

Gene Autry fans should enjoy it.
13 September 2006 | by (Ky.) – See all my reviews

A typical pre-World War II Gene Autry film, filled with lots of music, action and good production values. Republic Pictures was willing to spend extra here -- well above the average for a B-Western -- because Autry's films were always profit makers. In fact, Gene Autry was one of the most popular film stars of the late 1930's. Here too is the usual anachronistic mixture of horses and old western towns populated with trucks, motor cars -- even a radio station. Some will see this as ridiculous; personally, I find it rather charming. This well directed film featured a very exciting chase scene done with a polish that many big budget action films failed to achieve.
