Typical B movie for the second feature---
14 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

---of a double or triple bill during the studio era. Pleasant enough to watch with your popcorn. Older viewers like me remember it well.

Dennis O'Keefe is a loud mouthed braggart who has trained a paint cow-pony to play polo Texas style. The horse only obeys him and when some easterners come to the ranch to buy ponies for their polo teem, it is a deal to have the rider and the pony as a team, if O'Keefe can make his own way back east.

Our hero gets into much trouble with the sister of the buyer and continually has disasters, like dunking her in the lake etc. Not extremely funny, but not horrible, except for the attitudes toward women. But that was then, this is now; and this was one of O'Keefe's early roles playing a bumbling fellow, which in later films he perfected. Jack Carson and Buddy Ebson provide some humorous moments. 6/10
