Storyline

The Army wants the ranchers land and the Borax plant for their maneuvers. Stevenson is dissatisfied with their offer for the plant and has his men blowing up ranches making it look like the work of the Army. He hopes when the ranchers rebel the Army will raise their bid to avoid trouble. Gene has been sent to investigate but the eviction day has arrived and the ranchers prepare to fight the Army.

Quotes

Sergeant Gene Autry: We need planes where our men can train and our equipment can be tested over and over again until every flaw can be found and corrected. And I don't believe any of you are such poor Americans that you won't be proud to do your part.

Singing cowboy rides the range for the Army.

The sixth of seven movies made by Gene Autry in 1939. A western movie with cars, airplanes and military tanks. Sgt.Gene Autry is an Army attache assigned to purchase ranch land for an Army training ground and bombing range. Autry crosses ways with a greedy group of ranchers who are holding out for an unreasonably steep price for their land. Of course Autry always finds time to sing...a few of the songs featured are "My Buddy", "Little Pardner" and the classic "Tumbling Tumble Weeds". Also in the cast are:Smiley Burnette, June Storey, 'Gabby' Hayes, William Hall and Johnathan Hale. Falls a little short of your typical shoot 'em up. This original Republic Pictures film has recently been refurbished.
