Morgan and unlikely heroes take on crooks to save ranch
Frank Morgan leads a likable cast in this pleasant comedy about a kindly but unsuccessful New York actor who inherits a ranch out west and needs help saving it from a gang of outlaws.
Virginia Weidler is tops as the 12-year-old niece who has high expectations for her Uncle Henry; she helps Morgan develop his better self and eventually finds in him a kind of father figure.
Among Morgan's other new western friends are Slim Summerville as the mild-mannered local sheriff; Guy Kibbee, a lawyer of dubious morals who turns out to be an ally as well; and Owen Davis, Jr., handsome young cowboy who is falsely jailed for murder but lends assistance to the cause when Weidler charms the sheriff into letting him "escape." Douglas Fowley plays the lead baddieand very nasty and snippy he is when his wicked plans are thwarted! But even he looks like he knows it's all in fun.
Morgan is very good at the center of it all. Hesitant, nervous, indecisive, well-intentioned but occasionally blusteryhe is easy to root for.
Very lightweight but lots of fun .Charming characters and a cute if simple story make this one enjoyable.
