Gene's Done Better
22 January 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Sub-par 60-minutes for Gene's premier Republic period. The story's pretty good even if familiar—ranchers being cheated out of their land. But putting their land up for auction does make for an exciting climax as Gene races against time. One reason I like these early Autry entries is that Frog gets to be more than comic relief. Here he does acrobatic fisticuffs with the best of them. He was really a very talented guy. Too bad the production doesn't leave the non-scenic San Fernando Valley for maybe scenic Lone Pine and the Sierras. After all, the title is Mountain Rhythm, not Valley Rhythm. Anyway, catch how the guys start that cattle stampede—it's funny as heck. The songs, unfortunately, are pretty undistinguished, except for a couple familiar ones. All in all, Gene's done better.
