Cavanaugh and McCauley are after the ranchers land. When the Government announces the land will be put up for auction, the ranchers pool their money only to have it stolen by Cavanaugh's men. They then plan to sell their cattle but Cavanaugh announces a fake gold strike and the cowhands all leave. But Gene's hobo friend the Judge says he will get the cattle to market and he sends out a signal to his hobo friends. Written by

Sub-par 60-minutes for Gene's premier Republic period. The story's pretty good even if familiarranchers 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 stampedeit's funny as heck. The songs, unfortunately, are pretty undistinguished, except for a couple familiar ones. All in all, Gene's done better.
