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.

Gene Autry Pre WWII Pep Rally
29 August 2010 | by (Pennsylvania, United States) – See all my reviews

Lots of slapstick and Pre WWII military machinery.

High patriotism even had me signing along and waving the Stars and Stripes at times. I almost enlisted before I remembered I was too old for service.

I was particularly interested in the pre war aircraft and even a mini tank that provided some humor with Smiley Burnette at the helm. Planes, a tank and even a calvary charge. Some Three Stooges slapstick along with the usual fight scenes made this a cut above the usual Autry Oater of the time.

I'd go to war with Sgt. Autry anytime. Shooting a plane down with his trusty Winchester, Yee Ha!
