Quotes

[Walker shows Gene and Frog their new executive offices]
Henry Walker: Well, boys, what do you think of it.
Gene Autry: I'd feel a lot more at home down in the stockyard.
Frog Milhouse: Well, me too. I-I don't like being cooped up. You're liable to get hydrophobia or something.

Unexpectedly deft and charming musical comedy.

Many miles removed from the courtly, stodgy, and synthetic quasi-cowboy epics normally associated with Gene Autry. Spry and amusing script must have been snuck into Republic via some crew member's lunchbox (even the studio's trotting out their complete library of ancient stock footage for an obligatory stampede climax plays as DELIBERATE high comedy). Add a delightful score, an excellent supporting cast, and a young and almost relaxed looking performance from the star and you come up with a very rare package: an Autry that even an audience allergic to cowboy camp can enjoy. All in all a small delight.
