Cattle inspector
29 June 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Home On The Prarie casts Gene Autry as a cattle inspector checking various herds for hoof and mouth disease and other various and sundry ailments that affect the bovine. But a dead calf with hoof and mouth disease is found on the spread of his good friend George Cleveland and his daughter June Storey. Gene's romantic plans with Storey may get a real crimp in it if he has to have their herd destroyed.

But it's not Cleveland's herd that's the problem. That calf is planted there by the real villain who wants to get his cattle to market before they're discovered to be diseased.

Gene and Smiley Burnette take on a third and fourth partner in this one. Medicine show man Earle Hodgins and his elephant who come in mighty handy in the pinch. Think of Gunga Din as you reflect on my last remark.

Good paced Gene Autry western, even some grownups might like it.
