Ronnie thinks his father is a big rancher in the west and doesn't know that his father, Alfred Willoughby, is serving time in San Quentin prison because of a frame-up by the officials of a packing company. To keep the father from testifying against them, the packing company officials, Carter, Jenkins and Martin, have arranged for the boy to be kidnapped. Along the way a runaway bride, Joyce Halloway, and her young sister Patsy join the troupe.

One of the better Autry movies
11 October 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

One of Gene Autry's most amusing films, all the better for taking the star out of his familiar horse opera surroundings. Of course, Autry is accompanied on his journey by usual sidekicks Smiley Burnette and Champion "The Wonder Horse," but the fact is that it takes him across the country with a pair of engaging girls. One of them (Mary Lee, I think) is sort of a country-western version of Judy Garland and the other plays an engaging young heiress on the lam from marriage. There's also a boy running from mobsters who try to kidnap him to blackmail his father into not testifying against their boss. There's a lot of funny situations, of course some fast riding and straight shooting, plus lots of pretty good songs. Pure escape and worth the trip.
